URGENT ALERT!

Continuing Education for Electrical Certification Renewal

There is a lot of confusion about WHO can deliver the mandatory 32-hours of Continuing Education courses to Certified Electricians needing to renew their Certification. Make sure you are taking classes that the State of California will accept. This is serious, you can't afford to be wrong! See below for the complete alert and make sure you are in compliance with your continuing education requirements.

1) If your company has a person on staff offering to deliver Continuing Education courses to your employees… and that person does not meet the requirement(s) of Regulation 290.1, the hours will not qualify towards State renewal.

2) If a person/entity(s) solicits your company to deliver Continuing Education courses to your employees… and that person/entity does not meet the requirement(s) of Regulation 290.1, the hours will not qualify towards State renewal.

Regulation 290.1 states:
Chapter 2. California Apprenticeship Council - Subchapter 4. Electrician Certification
§290.1. Definitions - dir.ca.gov/t8/ch2sb4.html

Educational Provider is a community college or public school district or public educational institution, or a state-licensed private post-secondary institution under contract with a public educational institution, community college or public school district, or a private postsecondary educational institution approved or registered by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education.”

There are NO exceptions to the regulation…not even OSHA training through a certified individual will qualify unless the course is provided through a State recognized “Education Provider”.

ABC SoCal is a State recognized Educational Provider.

NOTE: The Division of Apprenticeship Standards recently revised the certification renewal application form to include instructions to attach Certificate(s) of Completion for the required 32 hours of continuing education completed by the applicant.ABC students will be provided with the proper paperwork to submit to the State.
