map of TexasElectrician licensees must complete four hours of continuing education in courses approved by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. These courses must address the following:

  • National Electrical Code, as adopted under Title 8, Occupations Code §1305.101, or the current version of the National Electrical Code, as approved by NFPA.
  • State law and rules that regulate the conduct of licensees.
  • Safety as defined in NFPA 70E.

In lieu of taking four hours of continuing education as required in §73.25(b), an electrical apprentice or electrical sign apprentice may enroll in a department-registered apprenticeship training program.

Continuing education courses must be completed within the term of the license being renewed. For example, if a license expired on January 4, 2014, the continuing education courses taken to renew that license must have been taken between January 4, 2013 and January 4, 2014. 

NFPA will submit your hours directly to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.
