NEWARK – The Board of Examiners of Electrical Contractors (Board) has proposed amendments to its continuing education requirements for licensed electrical contractors and qualified journeyman electricians. The proposed amendments allow licensees and registrants to earn up to eight hours of continuing education credit per triennial registration period from Board-approved distance learning courses, except for the required 10-hour National Electrical Code (NEC) course, which must be in-person. In addition, the proposed amendments expand the sources of acceptable continuing education.

The proposed regulation, and information on how to submit a comment by March 4, 2022, can be viewed here.
