A Tennessee Limited License Electrician’s license is required for electrical work if the amount of the materials and labor are less than $25,000.  Since 1997, AtHomePrep has helped over 350,000 students obtain their contractors license. Our Tennessee Electrical Exam courses are taught by an electrical professional who had to take this test just like you. And with our No Pass, No Pay policy, it’s risk free for you.

How Access (And Get The Most Out Of) Online Course Material

One of the great benefits of online courses is that you can take them anytime and virtually anywhere. As long as you have internet access, you can access your course materials. After you have purchased your online course with AtHomePrep, simply login to access your study material. Everything you need will be found on your account page. We also have education specialists standing by via chat, phone or email to answer any questions you might have. That being said, here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your online course:
  • Set aside regular time to study.  Take the time you need to thoroughly go through the course and take your time with the tabs to make sure you get them placed just right.
  • Try to find a quiet place to study or use headphones to create your own environment where you can focus on the material. Distractions are unavoidable, but many of our students have told us that they performed the best after being in a focused study environment.
  • Get a good rest before the exam. Many studies show a link between a well-rested mind and higher test scores.
