Utah electricians are required to complete 16 hours of approved electrical continuing education every two years by November 30. 12 of those hours must be on Core related topics and focus on the National Electrical Code (NEC) updates. The remaining 4 hours may be Professional Education Hours (PEH) covering NFPA 70E, OSHA, and MSHA approved topics.
How do I renew my electrician’s license?
- Complete the required 16 hours of continuing education.
- Approximately two months prior to the license expiration date, renewal information is sent to each licensee’s last address of record, as provided to DOPL. Complete the renewal application. Licensee’s will need to sign the citizenship and qualifications affidavit. If you answered “yes” to any of the qualifying questions, you will need to provide documentation related to your arrest or conviction.
- Submit your application and a check or money order for the renewal fee to the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing. The division will renew your license as long as you have met the renewal requirements and have not engaged in professional misconduct during the prior licensing period.
