According to Alabama’s electrical licensing requirements, Alabama Electrical Contractor’s and Provisional Electrical Contractors are required to complete 14 hours of continued education every two years. 7 of these electrical education hours must be based on National Electrical Code (NEC) or National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) topics.
License renewal dates for Alabama electricians occur annually on a quarterly biases. Electrical contractors must renew their licenses by the end of the quarter their license was issued in. the quarters are every 3 months:
- March 30th
- June 30th
- September 30th
- December 30th
The state of Alabama will allow 6 additional approved CE hours to be carried over for the following two year continuing education cycle. The current license categories require continuing education for renewal:
- Electrical Contractors: 14 hours — 7 hours must cover the current NEC
- Provisional Electrical Contractors: 14 hours — grandfathered in as the license is no longer offered
- Journeymen: continuing education is not required
- Electrical Inspectors: dependent on local jurisdiction requirements
- Master Electricians: 14 hour, referred to as an electrical contractor
