So, the local home owners and area farmers must pass a test before they
can do wiring. Look in the catalog of your local vocational/technical
school, they will certainly offer a course in this. You might check with the
agricultural extension service also, since local farmers certainly do a lot
of wiring. I realize that you don't want to wait but to do it right I think
you'll need to wait.
As others have pointed, out this exam and permit system encourages
illicit wiring, not that I'm suggesting that you do this.
Keep the government out of it. Just do the work and get on with life. This
is government run amok, again. If you do all this garbage its just another
fund-raiser just because they don't tax you enough already. HA. Keep you
money, do the work, of course ensure you are doing it safely and move on.
The nfpa web site has books you can order. Residential wiring is a
good one, it reads like classroom textbook, but it only references the
NEC. You can find that in the library. I have the 1999 version, time
to upgrade myself to 2005 versions.
Another good one is the inspector's checklist, also references the NEC.

The requirement or permit comes when running the wires. Adding to an
existing circuit or even adding
a new one requires this "permit". It's ridiculous and as I said, I didn't
know of this requirement before installing
my subpanel and in floor receptacle. Ahh the beauracracy of it all...
