    NICET exams vs. NETA exams?

    Any of you folks know how the NICET power test exams compare to the NETA exams? I've gone through NETA 2, 3 and 4, and passed them. I'm looking to knock out the NICET exams next. I haven't found any forums, message board, etc on NICET. Anything you could share would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I passed my Level I. It's basically the same as taking an OSHA 30 Safety class plus adding in a few testing technical terms. The Level I study guide on the homepage and the practice test had me pretty solidly prepared.

    Some main point i remember:
    • hazard awareness training, basic first aid, confined space entrant and attendant procedure.
    • meggohmeter functions and purposes, as well as internal discharge circuits
    • choking / cpr practices
    • moving injured people, when or when not to.
    • electrical ppe, insulated gloves, hardhats, safety glasses, and arc flash cal ratings
    • business ethics, padding your timecard.

    I'm in the process of doing the opposite. I'd say the NICET exams are very similar to the new version of NETA tests. Obviously NICET 1 would compare to NETA 2, 2 to 3, and 3 to 4.

    NICET 2 - 4 are comparable to NETA 2 - 4.

    NICET 1 is a safety exam. An OSHA 30 course and 6 - 12 months in the industry should prepare one to easily pass the exam.

    This is spot on with what I've seen and heard.

    I have to agree with this. I've taken NETA 1-3 tests and NICET 1-2 so far. NICET does seem to be about 1 level harder than that of NETA. They may be evening things out as of lately, but I have no need to take the actual NETA exams as I am and OEM field rep and we focus on NICET. Even though they are all based on the same ANSI standards!
