well it was bound to happen someyear....

i just sent my renewal in for my Mass ticket, the latest electrical literature they also enclosed states that for the next code cycle 20 hrs of CEU will be required.

so all those 15 hr code updates will now have to change, or reciprocity will

are there more CEU's being asked for elsewhere ??????

Sparky,
Please excuse my ignorance, but what does CEU stand for?

Phila. PA only requires renewal fees. However ,NJ requires retesting every 3 yrs. So, all in all , CEUs might not be that difficult of a requirement. I imagine that most code programs and such that don't offer CEUs will begin to, and those that do may consider upping the ante to reflect State requirements. Doing so would be a keen marketing strategy.

Thanks, I realized what a CEU was while @ the grocery store.
** Do you suppose they'd accept 2000 hrs. on the Joe Tedesco BB as an alternative??(haha)**
Honestly, I think the idea of Continuing Education is a great one. Old guys like me tend to get "locked in & lazy" sometimes. Without some form of updating yourself, you end up falling prey to being corrected of changes as I have by 2yr apprentices. CA government as of yet doesn't require any education at all.

Sparky,

I think that'd be 'units' not credits?

Don't need them here yet, but next county over does.

Maybe we'll give credits here for every topic someone can take to flames and not have to recant something? [Linked Image]

Bill,
yes they are, sorry, the kids were killing the cat while i was typing, very distracting.
( i'll edit...)

CEU's are required in Mass, NH, VT .

There are courses offered thru the local IAEI chapter, VECA ( Vermont electrical contractors assoc.) Meca ( ditto), as well as quite a few colledges and private tutors.

Just about all of these updates are 15 hrs, and the common complaint being not enough time to go over the changes, as the amount of such obviously has snowballed every cycle.

So to read the latest from Mass made me wonder if this would be the 'tip' of the iceberg.

Ok Bill...that's # 6 !

Sparky, here in NC they changed it from 6 HRS CEC to 8 HRS CEU now. Which now most of us can either take a course on line with Jade Electric or Mike Holt just to name a few, to get our credit. Of course here they have doubled our license fee. At least I know they did for limited classification. The CEC is a good thing for it does keep us informed of most code changes.

Here in Washington state, 24 hrs. of CEUs is required to get a journeyman electrician's license renewed every three years.
