Electrical Board: Continuing Education

All Colorado-licensed Residential Wireman, Journeyman, and Master Electricians must complete 24 hours of continuing education each three-year license cycle before renewing their credential. 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.

Continuing education hours must be selected from among the Core Competencies below in any combination. A minimum of four hours is required in National Electrical Code Changes. No more than four hours will be credited in safety courses related to the electrical industry; however, there is not a requirement to take courses in safety training. 

    A.  Grounding and Bonding
    B.  National electrical Code changes (minimum of four hours required)
    C.  Wiring methods
    D.  Theory and calculations
    E.  Safety related to the electrical industry (four hours maximum)

   *All courses must be taken with an approved provider (found in the link below).

Audits of compliance will be conducted after each renewal cycle ends.*

Please retain all copies of your completed certificates for seven (7) years, in the event you are selected for audit review.
