On Friday, January 25, 2013, the Board transitioned to a new testing agency, PSI. This office has transferred currently approved exam candidate files to PSI.
We do not foresee any transition difficulties or examination delays, however, if you are unable to schedule an examination with PSI, contact the Office of Licensing at 303-894-7800.
VERIFICATION OF EXPERIENCE FORM
The examination is in a multiple-choice format. Questions are based on the currently adopted National Electrical Code. A few of the categories covered in the exam are: grounding and bonding, wiring methods and theory and calculations. Your pass or fail results will be provided at the testing site.
NOTE: Positive photo identification must be presented at the time of admission to the electrical examination.
Temporary Work Permit
FYI: Electrical Contractors can manage their electrical apprentice registration needs online by using Online Services.
Please be advised that in accordance with the Colorado Electrical Law, any individual employed in the electrical trade is considered an apprentice and must be registered until such time as the individual has actually obtained a Colorado electrician's license.
The electrical contractor is responsible for compliance with the law regarding licensing and registration of their employees.
The application processing fee must accompany your application. Fees are non-refundable and are subject to change every year on July 1.
