Approved Course List (Downloadable)



No master, journeyman, power limited or class B electrician license will be renewed unless proof of eight continuing education hours have been submitted, of which a minimum of fifty percent of the hours must be based on the 2020 edition, National Electrical Code. The remaining credits shall be subjects related to the electrical industry. Approval of the education curriculum is required by the board.

  • The provider of the class shall forward an attendance list to the board on a form supplied by the board within fifteen days following the class.  Please keep this in mind at renewal time and your deadline to renew.

    • The board requires proof of continuing education completion to come from the provider. We do not accept individual completion certificates.

  • Continuing education credits will not be given for attending the same continuing education class more than once in a code cycle (example: same sponsor, same title and same class approval number).

  • Continuing education credits can be deposited with the board for a period up to two license renewal periods.

  • The Board has reiterated its policy at the September 17, 2014 Board Meeting that each course/class approval has to be at least worth 4 hours. In other words, we would not approve any classes under 4 hours of code.

  • All courses, including online/correspondence, taught will need to go through NDSEB approval.

  • If you have taken any online/correspondence courses approved by the North Dakota State Electrical Board, but taken it through another state, you will need to contact that provider to determine "equivalency" and if you will either need to take the required North Dakota section of the class or the entire course again through the North Dakota portal before receiving North Dakota CEU credit.
