Update – Allentown now has their own electrical exam, the Allentown 701 and requires a score of 75 to pass.
If you didn’t already know, Allentown has switched its electrical exam and now use ICC’s (International Code Council’s) standard testing. Applicants need to first register with the city and instructions will be given to take the Pittsburgh (701) exam thereafter. I recommend that you take the Philadelphia (211) exam if you are looking to pursue licensing elsewhere as well, because there is a stricter require. Although the tests are identical. The Philadelphia electrical exam requires a 75% to pass where the Pittsburgh exam and many others only a 70%. No sense in having to take the same exam multiple times. Again, if you meet the requirements for the 211 exam then you exceed the others and many other municipalities in Pennsylvania utilize the 211 exam.
