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

You don’t, but your 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 such as ECSTI is so important.
