Electrician licenses expire on June 30 of even years (e.g., 2020, 2022). Inspection Agency permits expire annually on June 30 each year.
A few months before the expiration date of your license, a renewal notice will be sent to the email address on the record. This notice will explain how to access your online renewal application in DELPROS, our online professional licensure system. To complete the online renewal application, you must log-in to your account, answer questions, and use a credit card to pay your renewal fee.
All notices about professional licenses, such as renewal and audit notices, will be sent by email only. It is important to keep your contact information up-to-date so that all the notices we send reach you. To check and update your contact information online, click on Manage Profile link in DELPROS.
An active Electrician license must be renewed in DELPROS every two years before the expiration date. During renewal, you are asked to attest that you have completed the required continuing education units (CE) and meeting the liability insurance requirement . Journeyman and Apprentices are exempt from the Insurance requirement.
For detailed information on the CE and Audit requirements, see the Continuing Education and Audit Information webpage or see Sections 6.2, 6.3 and 8.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations. After the renewal, a percentage of licensees are randomly selected for audit of CE.
If you do not renew your license before the expiration date, your license will expire. It is illegal to practice in Delaware while your license is expired.
You may file a late renewal application up to one year after the expiration date in DELPROS. You must pay a late fee in addition to the renewal fee. Even though you can file a late renewal application, it is illegal to practice until your active license is actually renewed. The late period is not a “grace period.” All late renewals will be audited.
If you fail to renew within one year, your license will terminate. To resume practicing in Delaware after termination, you must reapply in DELPROS as a new applicant.
If you hold an active Electrician license (individual-type only) but are not practicing in Delaware, you may request to place your license in inactive status by submitting a Service Request in DELPROS, our online portal. You must request inactive status before the expiration date of your license. If your expiration date has passed, you must first renew your license, then request inactive status. You cannot practice in Delaware while your license is in inactive status.
To maintain your inactive license, you must renew it in DELPROS before the expiration date. You must attest to completing the required CE, but liability insurance is not required for inactive licenses. You must pay a small inactive renewal fee. Renewal will keep your license in inactive status for two more years.
To resume practicing in Delaware, you must reactivate your license by submitting a Service Request in DELPROS. You must submit proof of insurance, reactivation fee and enter continuing education into the DELPROS CE Tracker. For more information on reactivating an inactive license, see Section 7.5 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations and Title 24 § 1411(d).
The Inspection Agency license must be renewed in DELPROS every year before the expiration date.

If you fail to renew the Inspection Agency by the end of the 45-day late period, your license will terminate. To resume operating, you must reapply in DELPROS as a new applicant. See (24 Del. C. §1421 and Section 15 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations).
