Electrical Trainee Requirements/Renewal Extension

Below is an excerpt from the February issue of L&I’s Electrical Current Newsletter. To view the complete newsletter, click here.

Basic Classroom Training Required – Before you can renew your training certificate, you must have completed 48 hours of basic classroom education since your certificate became active. If your education requirement is not complete by the expiration date of your certificate, you cannot renew it and you cannot work in the electrical construction trade. If you do not renew by your expiration date, you will have to pay a late renewal fee. To assist trainees during the Covid-19 pandemic, the department has made some temporary allowances:

  • Basic classroom instruction providers may temporarily conduct classes with virtual methods using internet-based platforms under specified conditions. We published details in the August 2020 newsletter. Check with course providers for more details. You can find a list of classes on the basic classroom instruction page of our website.
  • To allow additional time for trainees to complete basic classroom education required to renew, trainees may work with an expired certificate for 90 days after their certificate expires. This temporary allowance was made last year due to decreased availability of classes and will continue until further notice. Watch this newsletter for updates.
