    • For those individuals that will be taking the Kentucky Electrician or Master tests through Pearson Vue, note that if you do not pass but have a high enough test grade, Pearson Vue offers a two hour review session that will only show you the questions that you answered incorrectly in an effort to show you the areas that you may need more preparation. There is a fee for taking this review. We suggest any future test takers would be wise to inquire about this service in the event you fall into that category. All of Pearson Vue's contact info can be found on our Licensing Page. Please contact them for more information.
