Electrical Board: Continuing Education

All Colorado-licensed Residential Wireman, Journeyman, and Master Electricians must complete 24 hours of Continuing Education (CE) during each three-year license period before they may renew their license. This requirement does not apply for the first renewal of the license for which, as a condition of issuance, the applicant successfully completed a licensing examination.
CE hours must be selected from among the Core Competencies listed below:

  • Grounding and Bonding
  • National Electrical Code Changes
  • Wiring Methods
  • Theory and Calculations
  • Safety Related to the Electrical Industry

Additional Information for Licensees

  • A minimum of four (4) hours is required in National Electrical Code Changes.
  • No more than four (4) hours will be credited in safety courses related to the electrical industry; however, there is not a requirement to take courses in safety training.
  • CE courses will only be accepted by the Board if they are taken with a CE provider/vendor that has attested to the Board that their courses and instructors meet the requirements of Board Rule.
  • Audits of compliance will be conducted after each license period.
  • Licensees are responsible for maintaining their own CE documentation; CE providers/vendors do not supply the Board with CE completion records. Please retain all copies of your completed course certificates for seven (7) years, in the event you are selected for an audit.
  • It is the responsibility of all licensees to ensure CE courses and providers meet the requirements in Board Rule. Reporting providers whose courses do not meet the requirements as stated in rule can be done by emailing the Board at dora_electricalboard@state.co.us.
