The NCSCB Personal Certification Program for Medium Voltage Cable Splicers that allows an individual to demonstrate his or her knowledge, skills, and abilities in splicing and terminating shielded electrical power cable. By the passing of both a written and a performance (practical) exam, competency of splicing will be recognized by the issuance of a certification card in the specialties that were examined. This certification is for splicers and others who are interested in affirming the KSA’s (Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities) of workers who splice and terminate medium voltage electrical power cables.
Currently the certification consists of a written examination that focuses on common core knowledge of Medium Voltage cable, accessories and safety related topics. A performance or practical examination is also administered that requires the candidate to demonstrate core knowledge, skills and abilities common for medium voltage cable splicers working with shielded electrical power cables.
We presently offer three categories of splicing certifications:
- Written Exam
- Manufactured kits (splices and terminations)
- Hand-applied taping
