13SCRE01 - Electrical Code & Theory for the Journeyman's License - Modules 7 & 8 - 150 Hours
Would you like to become a licensed electrician/journeyman? According to the Massachusetts State Board of Electrical Examiners, before you take the licensing exam you must complete:
8000 HOURS OF EMPLOYMENT (approximately 4 years) as an apprentice under the direct supervision of a holder of a MA Class B Journeyman’s license.
600 HOURS OF CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION (8 modules - approximately 75 hours each) in electrical code and theory from an approved school based on the current National Electrical Code.
Note: There is no set order for the two requirements listed above. For example, you may start working as an electrical apprentice first, or you may start classes first, or do both concurrently. This course consists of two modules, or 150 hours. Important: We will provide two make-up classes at no extra charge at the end of the course.
