Utah Electrical Continuing Education Simplified
Utah Master Electricians and Journeyman Electricians are required to complete 16 hours of continuing education every two years in order to renew their license. The renewal deadline is November 30th of even numbered years and the content must include at least 12 hours of National Electrical Code. The remaining 4 hours can be on any of the following topics:
· National Fire Protection Association 70E (NFPA 70E)
· Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
· Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA)
· Electrical motors and motor controls
· Electrical tool usage
· Supervision skills related to the electrical trade
All licensed Utah electricians will receive a license renewal application in the mail in early October. The renewal notice will be sent to the last address on record, so be sure to notify the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL) if you’ve moved. Most professional licenses can also be renewed online with a credit or debit card and a unique “Renewal ID Number”. The cost to renew the license is $63.
The provider of the continuing education is required to provide proof of completion to the DOPL within 10 days of course completion. Certificates are no longer accepted with renewals.
NOTE: Master Electricians have reciprocity with three other States. Journeyman Electricians have reciprocity with 13 other States.
