How Do I Renew My Massachusetts Electrical License

Steps to Renew My Massachusetts Electrical License

Step 1 – Create an Account on Massachusetts’ ACA ePLACE

The state of Massachusetts has gone online – this means you will be renewing your electrical license online.  In order to have an easy renewal when July comes around, you will want to first Register an Account on the ACA portal.

ACA Registration Page

When you’re ready to register an account, visit the Commonwealth of Massachusetts ePLACE Portal.  First you will agree to the terms to register an account.  Then, you will create your login information on the Account Registration page.  You will have to create a username and password for the ACA website.

The password has requirements including:

  • A minimum of 8 characters
  • At least 1 upper-case letter
  • At least 1 number
  • At least 1 special character

You will also have to include Contact Information, including at least one individual who you would like contacted with any question regarding the application.

ACA Account Created

Once you have registered an account, you will be notified with the following message: “Congratulations.  You have successfully created an account with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts ePLACE.  You will receive a confirmation by email.”

Now you have an ACA account, but you still will have to link this Portal account to your license record.

Step 2 – Link Your ACA Portal Account to Your License Record

Login to your portal account and click on the Home tab.  Under the menu, you will see a header that says “What would you like to do?”  Under it, you will see a link to link your account to your license.  Select “Link Your License/Permit/Certificate to your portal account” and then click “Continue” at the bottom of the page.

  3. Select the “Continue” button
  4. On the next page, review the information for accuracy and hit “Continue”
  5. Once you get the “Successfully Submitted” page, you are linked.

Step 3 – When Does My Massachusetts Electrical License Expire?

Massachusetts electrical licenses expire every 3 years on July 31st. Massachusetts electrical licenses will expire on July 31, 2019. In order to continue working and keep an active electrical license, you must renew your license before the expiration date.
