Massachusetts Electrical CE Requirements
Massachusetts master and journeyman electrical license renewal
Step 1: Complete Required Continuing Education
Your first step to renew either a master or journeyman license is to complete the required continuing education hours.
- You need 21 hours per triennial renewal cycle.
- Of those 21 hours, 15 hours need to focus on the Massachusetts Electrical Code, based on the National Electrical Code (NEC).
All Massachusetts Electrical Code courses must be approved in advance by the Board of State Examiners of Electricians.
Step 2: Renew Your License Online
All Massachusetts electricians need to submit their license renewal online. To do that, you need to register in the state’s ePLACE Portal. This will require some setup, but once you have a username and password, using that portal is really easy. And you can use it for other things like submitting a chance of address.
The state has developed a detailed, step-by-step guide to help you register in ePLACE. To complete that registration, you’ll need two things: your Record ID (i.e., your license number) and your authorization code. You’ll find both on the renewal notice the Board mails you.
Once you’re logged in, you just go through the renewal process. Be ready to pay your renewal fee right there in the portal.
Massachusetts electrical apprentice renewal
Apprentices don’t need to worry about continuing education, but they do need to renew their apprentice ID card annually. Your card will expire each year on the date it was initially issued, so keep an eye on your timeline.
State of Massachusetts Electrical License Renewal Deadline
- Your master or journeyman electrician license expires on July 31, every three years. The next cycle ends on July 31, 2025.
You should receive a notice in the mail from the Board of State Examiners of Electricians about 60-90 days before your license will expire.
Even if you don’t get any renewal paperwork in the mail, it’s still up to you to make sure you renew your license on time.
