NICET Exam Practice Test

NICET Logo PatchNICET stands for the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies and the NICET exam can prove to be one of the most difficult steps in becoming a truly skilled fire life safety technician. This national program has been gaining a lot of respect throughout the last couple of years and is commonly found more and more within the specifications for particular projects. The reason behind this is simple. Architects, building owners and engineers know that NICET certified fire life safety technicians have the experience and knowledge to get the project done. You always know that a NICET certified technician has put in the time and effort to achieve their rank.

The NICET exam process can be stressful and demanding of your free time. This test will truly test your abilities as a fire life safety technician as well as common knowledge within the fields surrounding your trade. The exam is divided into four levels with IV being the highest. Each level is acquired by passing a specific computer based test (CBT).

  1. new Level III Fire Alarm NICET test tips

  2. Hi am preparing my test for level 3 i would like to buy the level 3 exam test.

  3. Just took my Nicet level 2 exam this past Friday 3/22/19, studied everyday for a month to prepare myself for this exam. I used for practice test and full sim practice exams, they also have some online content to study. Felt very confident that I was going to pass. Unfortunately failed with a score of 471, needed a 500 to pass. It is very frustrating to fail with all the time spent in studying. The real exam was nothing like the practice test or full sim test that I have been taking, so with that being said I am looking for study material and more practice tests that will be closer to the actual exam so I can retake and pass with exam. I see that you have practice test and study material also but I've noticed that your practice test for level 2 says there is 99 questions when there are 109 on the actual test so when was the last time you updated your training material.

    1. I am sorry you did not pass the level 2 exam. Our study material like everyone else, is simply put a guide to prepare you for the exam. No body is going to have a practice test that is exact to the physical NICET exam. All proactive tests are in place to give you an idea what to expect and how to navigate the reference they allow for the exam. Our material is currently undergoing a revision as we speak but can still prove to be useful in preparation. Dont take a practice test and expect to see all the same questions on the real thing. Best of luck to you and please reach out with any other questions.

  4. actually , you can take practice test ON NICETS webpage that are questions from the actual test . it cost.... but you can review yourself .

  5. You are correct. Nicet does offer small practice tests for each level.
