The state exam is a written exam comprised of about 30-40 multiple choice questions; you must score a 70% or better. Exam questions are a combination of regulatory and equipment specific topics. What sets us apart from our other training providers is that we don’t simply send you state law documents and charge you for it (these documents are free, by the way). Instead, we provide you with comprehensive study materials that prepare you for all sections of the state exam. So you are essentially studying the "CliffNotes" for the state exam.

To apply for a MA Hoisting Engineering License, you must submit an application to the MA Department of Public Safety (or, we can do it for you, per our "Electronic license application assistance" option).

  • The Mass DPS will receive and process your application, and schedule you for an upcoming exam. During "normal" processing times, new license applicants typically receive an exam date in the month following when they applied (ex: application submitted in June, exam date provided in July).
  • The Mass DPS will mail you (to the address provided on your application) exam details (date/location) about 2 weeks prior to your scheduled exam date.
  • A list of exam dates and locations can be found here.
  • You must achieve a 70% or better on a given exam in order to obtain the associated MA Hoisting Engineering license. If you score below a 70%, you must wait 60 days before you are allowed to retake the same exam.

If you've applied for a MA HE License and are curious about your application status, there are a few things you can do:

  • Check the License Verification portal and search by first/last name. If your name appears with the designation "pending," it means your application has been processed and you should soon receive details (mail) on your upcoming exam date/location.
  • Check with your bank. Has your application check been cashed by the Mass DPS? If so, they've received and have processed (or are processing) your application.
  • As a last resort, call the Mass DPS to inquire about your status (617.727.3200). Before calling, please remember the process of applying and then sitting for a MA HE license exam typically takes at least a month.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Safety - Hours of Operation: (Mon-Fri / 8:45am-5:00pm):

  • Call (508) 820-1444 to report all hoisting-related accidents.
  • All other Mass DPS calls: (617) 727-3200.
