In the dynamic world of the electrical industry, technologies, codes and standards, and customer requirements are constantly changing. Therefore, Iowa licensed electricians are required to participate in continued education to maintain their electrical licenses. These courses help electrical professionals gain and maintain the essential skills that are necessary to be successful in today’s competitive electrical industry. Within each three year license cycle, licensed electricians are required to attend no less than 18 Continued Education Units (CEUs) of which at least six must be on the most recent electrical code and the remainder on electrical code-related topics. If you have not had your license for the full 3-year term, you will need 6 hours of Continuing Education per year since the license was issued, of which at least 6 hours must be over the National Electrical Code. The Electrical Examining Board approves each instructor and their prospective courses with the course information posted on our website. Also posted here is a database in which every electrician can check on their accumulated CEUs.

PLEASE NOTE: The instructors have 30 days to submit the class rosters to our office, and the CEU report is updated every couple of months from those rosters that we receive from the instructors. Please check the date at the top of the Earned CEU Report-sheet to verify when it was last updated. If the class you took was after that date, your earned CEUs will not be shown until the next time we update the sheet. If your information does not reflect a class you attended, please check with your instructor to make sure it was submitted correctly to us. Then the instructor can contact us with any corrections that need to be made.
