The UExcel Labor Relations examination is based on material typically taught in a one-semester, three-credit, upper-level course on labor relations or collective bargaining. The examination is comparable to a Labor Relations course usually taken in the junior or senior year of those enrolled in a business, industrial relations, or economics program. The examination concentrates on labor relations in the United States, U.S. labor law, the organizing process, collective bargaining, contract administration, and miscellaneous subtopics. The examination measures knowledge of facts and terminology, an understanding of basic concepts, and particularly the ability to apply this knowledge in understanding of typical business situations as they relate to labor. The examination assumes a basic knowledge of management concepts. (Multiple-choice examination)
