E-Z LEARNING

What is E-Z Learning?
The staff at Badger State Learning includes a licensed Master Electrician and a former Wisconsin VTAE (Vocational-Technical-Adult Education) electrical instructor who both have experienced firsthand the time consuming process of completing CEU requirements. How to eliminate this bottleneck resulted in the development of the E-Z Learning model.

Techniques developed and proven in the classroom (Electrical Trades) are used to create desirable courses that are quick and will increase your knowledge retention. This is the E-Z learning method.

You will find our NEC code CEU internet offerings very different from the others. They are EZ to use - extensive code book and index searching is unnecessary, no trick questions, unlimited testing attempts, quick and convenient test submittal and returned test results.

Badger State Learning automatically submits all of your earned CEU's directly to the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services web portal for fast and direct reporting.

Best of all the 'McGalls EZ-Learning' feature ~ The EZ is the Educational Zone where learning is promoted through guided NEC code information targeting. This classroom developed and tested system actually makes the NEC more enjoyable to use and learn from.
