Michigan Electrical Administrative Board Continuing Education Requirements

The current code in effect for Michigan is the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC) which has an effective date of January 4, 2019.

Following are some continuing education (code update) highlights:

  • Michigan LARA continuing education (code update) requirements are on a completely different schedule than license renewals (see license renewal information below).
  • The continuing education (code update) course related to the newly adopted code must be completed within one year of the code adoption date. For example, the 2017 NEC code update adopted on January 4, 2019 should have been completed by January 4, 2020.
  • No Michigan LARA 2020 NEC code adoption. The Michigan LARA skipped the 2020 NEC code adoption (presumably related to the COVID-19 pandemic interrupting the typical adoption process), therefore there has been no continuing education (code update) requirement for the 2020 NEC since it was never adopted by the Michigan LARA.
  • Code update for the 2023 NEC. The Michigan LARA is working towards adoption of the 2023 NEC. Once adopted licensees will then have one year from adoption date to complete the code update. While PacePDH.com does not know when this will be, if the adoption follows the 2017 NEC timeline, the code update would need to be completed by the end of 2024 or beginning of 2025. We will update these dates as more information is provided by the Michigan LARA.


Michigan Electrical License Renewal

Technically, all Michigan electrical licenses expire on December 31st of each year. However, you have a 60-day grace period, or until March 1st to renew. However, please do not wait until the last minute because if you go past the 60-day grace period, you're license becomes void and you'd have to reapply for a new license.
