The Social Security Administration form is subject to change, however, while waiting for the updated form to be posted, please attach a verification of employment from your employer(s) with the following information included on their company letterhead: Classification, duties, dates of employment, total number of hours worked.
NOTE: For those who are renewing their certification:
If you are renewing prior to your certification card expiring, you will need to have 2,000 hours of work in the industry in the past three years, and have completed 32 hours of continuing education from an approved educational provider that are listed on our website under the following links:
If you are renewing after your card expired, you do not need to fulfill the 32 hours requirement for continuing education. Submit your Renewal Application with a check mark on the expired box and attach your $200.00 payment to retake the exam. You must retake the exam and pass or you will be illegally working.
Employers employing uncertified electricians may be investigated and penalties issued for not abiding by the law.
