Applying to Sit for the Exam

The Board of Electrical Examiners must approve you to sit for the examination.

To apply to take the required exam(s), you must first create a DELPROS user account.  Go to the DELPROS online portal, and then click on Apply/Manage a License and Service Requests. If you:

  • are already an existing user, log in with your email address and password under the existing user section.
  • have not yet created a DELPROS user account, click on REGISTER.

After creating your user account or logging into the DELPROS online portal, you may begin your application for licensure to take the required exam(s).

When the Board has reviewed and approved your application, you will receive an email notification stating you have been approved to sit for the exam. You will receive a separate email with the examination registration form.

Note: All Electrical examinations are based on the most up to date National Electrical Code (NEC).

Re-Taking the Exam

Registration Approval forms are good for 6 months. If your registration approval form has expired, you have failed the exam and wish to re-take it, you must go to DELPROS and log in to your e-License Dashboard. Click on Service Request in the top navigation bar, then click APPLY FOR A NEW SERVICE REQUEST and select the Request for Re-Examination service request type option.

After review and approval of your request, you will receive an email notification for approval to re-take the exam and another registration.

After Passing the Exam

You must obtain a minimum score of 75% to pass the exam. If you have not already done so, submit proof of liability insurance of at least $300,000 to the Board office (proof of insurance only applies to Master and Limited Electrician).

Allow up to two weeks for the Board office to receive your official examination score. Once the Board office receives your passing score and validates that you have met all requirements for licensure, your license will be issued.

You will receive an email notification stating your license has been issued including any additional details about license renewal and/or continuing education requirements.
