If you are interested in presenting a continuing education course, use the Instructor and Course Application. Courses are approved on a date basis only.

Continuing Education Requirements

To renew your license (every even year) you must have at least 16 hours of continuing education. Eight hours must be code-related. The remaining eight hours may be non-code.

Please do not contact the Commission inquiring on how many education hours you have at this time. We will begin keeping track of continuing education hours July 1, 2023, but will not require you to report all continuing education hours until July 1, 2024.

Important Reminder

Licensees are required to attain 16 hours of continuing education by the time of renewal or by June 30, whichever is sooner. A minimum of eight hours are required to be on the National Electric Code. In addition, only eight hours are allowed to be pre-approved correspondence or interactive online courses. Licensees are required to remit the certificate of completion to the Commission office once an online class has been completed.
