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 continuing 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 fewer than 18 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) of which at least 6 CEUs 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 CEUs for each year of the license-cycle in which you held a license, with at least 6 hours over the National Electrical Code. The Electrical Examining Board approves each instructor and their respective courses, with the course information posted on our website.
PLEASE NOTE: The instructors have 30 days from the date of the class to submit continuing education credit hours to our website. If your online license account does not reflect a class you attended, please check with the instructor.
