Are all online electrical courses created equal? No!

Minnesota has recently approved a new type of online video course sponsored by ECSTI that allows electricians to interact and explore the NEC on their terms. These courses are so simple and easy to use that even non-computer friendly electricians are giving them excellent ratings. Electricians are no longer stuck with boring low quality online courses. With ECSTI’s interactive video courses electricians are able to dive into the electrical topics they want to learn about and build knowledge that they can actually use in the field. ECSTI’s online electrical courses are instructed by Master Electrician and nationally acclaimed electrical author James Stallcup. Made by electricians, for electricians.

Electricians in Minnesota need 16 hour of approved electrical continuing education every two years in order to renew their license. Each electrical license holder, from master electrician to maintenance and power techs, need to complete 12 hours of approved education based on the most recent NEC and 4 hours of approved education based on Minnesota statutes and rules or technical topics related to installation and equipment. These electrical courses can be completed online as long as the provider and courses are approved by the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry.
