Prov State of Arkansas Electrical Examining Board Examinations Candidate Information Bulletin

Prov develops and administers online and paper/pencil examinations for construction industry licensing and certification.

The Arkansas Board of Electrical Examiners

The Arkansas Division of Labor, in conjunction with the Arkansas Board of Electrical Examiners (BOEE), oversees the licensing process for electricians. The Board has contracted with Prov, Inc. to develop, and administer their licensing examination program.

Arkansas law requires state licensing for each individual who is an electrician, or who is engaged in electrical work, or who uses any title, sign, card, advertisement or other device to indicate that they are engaged in electrical work.

To become licensed, you must first complete the appropriate application with the Arkansas Board of Electrical Examiners. Applications are posted online at the Board’s website. Once you have been approved for testing, the Board will notify you that you are eligible to contact Prov to schedule your examination. You will be eligible to take the exam for six (6) months.

Prov is not authorized to make the determination of which examination(s) candidates must take. If you are unsure which exam is needed for the license being sought, resolve this question before scheduling. If you have questions regarding which exam(s) to take, you must call the Board at 501.682.4549.
