UPDATE:

New Continuing Education Requirements for Colorado Electricians

Governor Hickenlooper signed House Bill 16-1073 into law on April 15, 2016. This law will replace the current continued competency program with a requirement of 24 hours of continuing education to be completed each renewal period. To renew your license in 2017, you must first complete any Professional Development Units (PDU) assigned to you after you completed the CC Assessment in 2014. However, you will not complete a new Continuing Competency Assessment. Instead, you will be required to complete 24 hours of continuing education before the following renewal period in September 2020.

Important: You must have your PDU requirements completed before you can renew your electrician license in September 2017.

The Electrical Board will soon be drafting rules on continuing education requirements. Stay tuned for details by monitoring this page for updates.

The State Board of Master Electricians issues only one license, Master Electrician. In Maryland the actual performance license to perform electrical work is issued by each of the local jurisdictions. Many of the local jurisdictions do issue additional categories of electrical licenses. All of these licenses are LESSER than a Master Electrician. For example some jurisdictions may issue a “general electrician”, “limited electrician”, or “low voltage” license as examples. If an individual was interested in obtaining a lesser license than a master electrician’s license, then it would be necessary to contact the local jurisdiction where you would anticipate working and determine if they offer a lesser license and the qualifications. Not all jurisdictions offer a lesser license. In those jurisdictions that do not, an individual would need a master electrician’s license to perform any electrical work.” Reciprocal Licensing.

“I have to say, Jeff, throughout my entire apprenticeship and journeyman education, I have never been taught the Code like JCR teaches it. It was eye opening. Your methods should be standard throughout the electrical community. If I had been taught the Code like that from the beginning, I would have understood its purpose a great deal more.”

J. Mitchel

“You are a Master Teacher. I learned how your materials really work. With your test I scored 86% and on the State test I scored 86%. Your Electrical Code Workshop material is like a short NEC book, and your 500 Sample Examination Question are a special value. They really work!”

“You can count me as another satisfied customer. I took your class in Raleigh back in April and took and passed my exam yesterday. Your class and practice tests you sold were invaluable. When you and your wife said my score would be within 3 points of the practice tests I was a little skeptical. Now I am a true believer.

My average score on your tests was 84, and I scored an 84 on my final exam. I honestly never thought I would be able to pass my exam the first time taking it, and I don’t think I would have had it not been for your class and study guide. Thank you Thank you Thank you!”
