I just today renewed my California Journeyman's Certification with the Division of Apprenticeship Standards. I first took the exam early in 2003.

I wondered what other electricians have done for Continuing Education, as it's very difficult to find classes without some form of sponsorship.

It was a pretty sorry turnout anyway, with the fumbling DAS delays after DAS delays, a poor showing by the electricians (less than 1/2 of the 79,295 that signed up for the exam actually passed it), and all the hacks that didn't think it was necessary to even sign up.

Do you think that the certified will dwindle in numbers now that renewal times come around?


BTW, I took my CEUs online at http://www.castatetest.com/continuededucation/login.php and was extremely satisfied.

Here in NJ we have a 3 year cycle, and EC's must complete :
9 hours of NEC Changes
1 hour of Contractor Law
24 hours of trade related subject matter

Certified Instructors by Board of Examiners.
Course fees are paid by EC
The above is for Lic. EC's, as presently, we have no other 'electrician' licenses.

I usually try to get the IAEI sponsored code classes and whatever I can wangle for free but in the end I end up filling out the requirements (law and ADA) with Red Vector courses on the internet.
If you see a Jim Pauley course, take it. He makes CEUs enjoyable and informative.

This is not a certification for a contractors license, rather it's a "California thing" that enables certified journeymen to work for a C-10 Electrical Contractor as an employee.

The entities are completely separate, of course, so that the right hand doesn't know what the left hand's doing (in typical California style). The Division of Apprenticeship Standards certifies the employee, and the Contractors State License Board, the employer.....and I don't think they've even "done lunch" together bash

OK, got it! I thought we (NJ) were the paperwork kings?
We have nothing like thet, but....our State groups seem to be living the 'California Dream' too.
