Certified Electricians, Registered Electricians and Alarm Contractors in Florida are required to renew their license every two years. The renewal deadline is August 31st each even numbered year (2014, 2016, 2018 etc). Along with submitting your renewal application to the Florida Electrical Contractors and Licensing Board with the renewal fee ($300 Certified, $125 Registered, $50 fee for delinquent licenses). You are also required to complete 14 hours of approved continuing education. Education providers must submit proof of completed hours to the State of Florida.

Do I need to turn in my Electrical Continuing Education Certificate to the state?

No you don’t, but your course (or education) provider does. Approved electrical continuing education providers must submit all completed hours to the state so that they can be applied to your specific license. This is one of the many reasons choosing a high-quality training provider like ECSTI is so important.

Are there special requirements for Miami-Dade County?

Yes, Electricians in Miami-Dade County must complete 16-hours of Continuing Education each licensing cycle (two more than the 14 hours required elsewhere in the state). The Miami-Dade County Board states that no more than 50% of the total required continuing education hours can be completed online (8 hours maximum).
