    Under the CEU tab on the Mike Holt site there are no approved CEU courses for MA. But if you go to this link http://license.reg.state.ma.us/publi..._providers.asp

    you may find a provider...

    Good luck

    The Massachusetts test is extremely hard and i don't know of many people in the past 5-8 years who've pasted it the first time. I passed it on my second try. I remember there were many questions on my test that were way off topic and shouldn't have been in the test. I'm convinced they don't want many people passing the test and want to limit the amount of licenses handed out each year.. Keep at it and you will get it.

    I went to Leo Martin in Norwood for my Journeyman and Masters. Passed both first try. Great school to learn the code.

    I'll second that. There is no better electrical school in the Bay State.

    Leo Martin

    I live about 5 minutes from his school, took a couple of 15 hour classes from him back in the day..............but he really really needs to get new chairs. It has been a while but he had those old wooden one piece desk/chair combo that were torture for 15 hours for a fatty like me. I hear Leo has retired and his son has taken over and doing a great job - let me know if they have comfy chairs!

    That's good to know, I've been going to AF Carasella (they're good imo) for the last three cycles - time to rotate schools just to mix it up.

    In the past I've gone to Joe Ross, NTS out of RI, Leo Martin, Joe Mar.........?(former City of Boston inspector) at Minuteman Technical, Lou Cianci at Blue Hills Regional, Bill Laidler at South Shore Regional, all good but after two or three code reviews it nice to hear new jokes.
