South Dakota Electrical Commission
In order to take an exam, you must meet the requirements for each license you have chosen. See our Licensing page for more information as needed.
You must submit an application (with the required application fee) to the Commission office. See our Forms page for the appropriate application form.
Once your application is approved, we will send you the details you need to locate the appropriate exam site and sit for the exam. You will have 90 days to make these arrangements.
Remember, you may not take the exam without prior written approval.
