GEC Exam Format and Dates

What is the exam format and dates?

The GEC exams are meticulously crafted and evaluated by respected authorities and quality adjudicators, such as senior directors at NRG Expert and seasoned energy industry experts with many years of combined conceptual and “hands on” experience. Prior to the issuance of the GEC Certificate, these exams undergo independent audits conducted by NRG Expert.

Furthermore, the exams and associated materials undergo rigorous and ongoing assessment by NRG Expert to ensure they consistently meet the industry’s expected standard of knowledge.

Examination and Training Requirement

All GEC candidates must spend at least 100 hours reading and studying the course materials and complete and pass in a two-hour time frame a written multiple choice exam which is proctored by an approved online exam administrator.

An intensive jobs task analysis was performed for the GEC and a weighted percentage of topics was developed for the GEC Study Guide, taken from the NRG Expert Intelligence Unit. Although a specific number of exam questions for each topic will not be provided, as it may change, the number of questions on the exam will align with the content percentages listed in the GEC Study Guide.

The GEC designation is now open for registration to new members on a rolling admissions basis. You can join at any time and complete the program at your own pace from anywhere in the world.
