How many CE hours do I need to renew my Electrical License in Virginia?

The state of Virginia requires all electricians to complete 3 hours of approved electrical continuing education. Electrical Contractors renew their licenses every two years with continuing education covering the National Electrical Code updates (NEC).

Electrical Codes and Standards Training Institute (ECSTI) offers three fully approved 3 hour online video courses, which fulfill all required electrical continued education. Our interactive online education courses for electricians and electrical contractors, are instructed by highly acclaimed author and instructor, James Stallcup.

ECSTI’s 3 hour Virginia courses cover:

  • Definitions and clearance rules mandatory to ensure the safety of the general public and personnel working on or near wiring equipment.
  • Revisions in the 2014 code, and understand the purpose and rationale behind those changes.
  • How to apply the rules of Chapters 4-9 of the 2014 NEC, to other sections of the code when designing electrical systems.

But wait, there’s more!

Electrical Codes and Standard Training Institute (ECSTI) in partnership with the Stallcup’s is releasing Instructor Presentation Package for classrooms across the country. Stallcup’s interactive presentations give instructors tools and information that have never before been available. With top notch graphics and illustrations, “clickable” references, embedded videos, and Stallcup’s entire E-library, this is what instructors have been waiting for. Each instructor presentation package include:

  • 2014 NEC Changes: These 2014 presentations include the original 2011 standard, the NFPA Report on Proposal, any correlations with NFPA, 70E, 70B and 79 along with revisions and acceptance principals.
  • 2015 NFPA 70E Electrical Safety Changes: Included in these presentations are illustrations with clickable references for every topic, the name of the submitter, the public input that influenced the change, as well as the revisions and response by the NFPA.
  • 2014 NEC Residential Receptacles, Motors and Transformers: This 4 hour interactive presentation course focuses on simplifying the more complicated rules pertaining to the design, installation, and selection of wiring methods and equipment.
