Please Note: This PDU Class is designed for the code cycle 2014-2017 and is for those with licenses that are up for renewal by September 2017. This PDU class does not apply to the new Colorado state requirements for the 2017-2020 code cycle. The new 2017-2020 code cycle classes will be called Continuing Education Units (CEUs). IECRM will be offering CEU classes beginning in October 2017 to meet the new Colorado state requirements for license renewal for the 2017-2020 code cycle. See below for more information from DORA’s website.
New Continuing Education Requirements for Colorado Electricians
Governor Hickenlooper signed House Bill 16-1073 into law on April 15, 2016. This law replaces 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 complete a new CC Assessment.
Before renewing your license in September 2020, all licensed electricians will have to complete 24 hours of continuing education, called Continuing Education Units (CEU). 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.
