Colorado Electrical PDU Current Continuing Education Requirements for Colorado Electricians
Pursuant to section 12-23-106(4)(d)(II), C.R.S., electricians shall demonstrate continuing competency in order to renew, reinstate or reactivate their license on or after January 1, 2011. The affected license types are:
- Residential Wireman
- Journeyman Electrician
- Master Electrician
Continuing Competency (CC) is an individualized program created to help licensees assess their professional work, identify areas of growth and stay current with the profession. The Colorado approach to Continuing Competency for electricians has three components:
1. An Individual Assessment of knowledge and skills (CC Assessment); 2. A Learning Plan containing Professional Development Units (PDU) 3. Documentation of PDUs to demonstrate compliance.
The CC program requires licensees demonstrate 24 PDUs in order to renew a license. An electrician may be awarded up to 24 PDUs for his/her performance on the CC Assessment. If you are awarded fewer than 24 PDUs, you must execute a Learning Plan to accrue PDUs prior to the next license renewal. The electrical renewal cycles occur every three years to coincide with the National Electric Code (NEC) updates. Generally, the renewal period will open in mid-August and remain open through November of renewal years. Licensees who are not renewed during that time will lapse on December 1.
New Continuing Education Requirements for Colorado Electricians
Governor Hickenlooper signed into law on April 15, 2016. This law will replace the current continued competency program with a requirement of 24 hours of continuing education to be completed each renewal period. The Continuing Competency (CC) Assessment will no longer be administered.
Before renewing your license in September 2017, you must first complete any Professional Development Units (PDU) assigned to you after you completed the CC Assessment in 2014. You will not be required to complete another CC Assessment.
Before renewing in September 2020, all licensed electricians will have to complete 24 hours of continuing education. The Electrical Board will soon be drafting rules on these new continuing education requirements. Stay tuned for details by monitoring the Electrical Board webpage for updates.
Important: You must have your 2014 PDU requirements completed before you can renew your electrician license in September 2017.
