    How long I should wait before attempting the NETA Level IV?

    I just passed the Level III at the end of April. Any suggestions on how long I should wait and continue to learn before attempting the Level IV exam?

    Hard to say how long you should wait. There are guys at my shop who have passed the Level 4 a few years after obtaining their level 3, others have been in the trade for over 20 years and have yet to pass the level 4 after two or more attempts.

    I've heard tall tales of the very special few who have passed all three tests in the same month. It just comes down to experience, confidence, and drive in my opinion. I have not taken the level 4, let alone seen much material from the exam but personally I wouldn't be scared to try. Unfortunately, it is up to my employer to verify my field time and register me for the exam first. How about you?

    I am coming up on my 4 year anniversary in August with the NETA Company that I am currently employed by. My hours worked probably puts me over 5 years worked assuming 2000 hours a year.

    NETA Level IV Qualifications

    You need at least ten years of experience in the electrical testing industry, have a minimum of 40 hours additional safety training, and have a minimum of 200 hours of additional training related to the certification element categories for Level IV listed in the NETA-ETT standard before you qualify for the Level 4.

    As far as I understand from my co-workers that went for NETA Level 4 is that there are a lot of transmission protection questions (about pilot wire and distance relays). So make sure you study that also
