How to Request Continuing Education (CE) Approval

To submit a request for a CE course approval, you must use the DELPROS online portal for Service Requests. Go to the Service Request webpage and follow the instructions on how to submit the Service Request.

  • It is important to have all of your course documentation available as you must upload the information in the Service Request application.

 

Continuing Education Requirement

The amount of Continuing Education (CE) that you are required to complete depends on your license type and when your license was issued during the full licensure period.

If you are licensed as a Master, Master Special, Limited or Limited Special Electrician and you have been licensed:

  • less than one year – you are not required to do CE
  • more than one year, but less than two years – you are required to complete 5 hours of approved CE

If you are licensed as a Journeypersons, Residential or Apprentice Electrician and you have been licensed:

  • less than one year – you are not required to do CE
  • more than one year, but less than two years – you are required to complete 2 hours of approved CE

For full licensure renewal periods between July 1 and June 30 even-numbered years (2018-2020, etc.):

  • Active Master, Master Special, Limited and Limited Special Electrician’s must complete 10 hours of approved CE. Beginning with your second renewal, 5 of the 10 CE hours must be related to the National Electric Code.
  • Active Journeypersons, Residential and Apprentice Electrician’s must complete 5 hours of approved CE.

Apprentice training (proof of enrollment in a Board approved apprenticeship program) will count toward CE hours during the licensure period it was completed.

For complete information on the CE requirements, see Section 8.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations.
