Expired Massachusetts Electrical License – What To Do Now

Is my Massachusetts electrical license expired?

Massachusetts electrical licenses expire on July 31, 2019. The Massachusetts Board of State Examiners of Electricians requires licensees to complete 21 hours of electrical continuing education every 3 years in order to renew their license. If you did not successfully renew your license in 2016, and your license expired July 31, 2016, make sure to complete your continuing education and renew your license now! If your license expired July 31, 2016 and you do not renew by July 31, 2019, you will lose your license and will need to re-test to become licensed again.

How do I check the status of my Massachusetts electrical license?

If you are not sure if you renewed during the last cycle (July 31, 2016), you can check you license status here.  Use the form to fill out your credentials and search for your license. If your license is expired you will see that listed under status. If July 31, 2016, is listed as the expiration date, you are still eligible for renewal this cycle. If you fail to renew this cycle you will have to re-take and pass your electrical exam to obtain a new valid license.

Please note if your license has a listed expiration date prior to July 31, 2016, it is likely you missed multiple renewal cycles and will have to re-take and pass your electrical exam in order to become licensed again.  You can check with the Board about next steps.

How can I make sure my Massachusetts electrical license does not expire?

If you are eligible for renewal, the best way to ensure your electrical license does not expire or become revoked is to complete your electrical continuing education hours and complete your license renewal in the ePLACE portal. The Massachusetts Board of State Examiners of Electricians requires licensees to complete 21 hours of electrical continuing education every 3 years. 15 of the 21 required hours must cover MCE update. The remaining 6 hours can be professional development.

JADE Learning’s board approved online continuing education courses will ensure you meet your renewal requirements. Online courses allow you to complete the hours on your own time at your own pace before the  7/31/2019 deadline.
