7 How to Become a Licensed Electrician 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.   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. If you do not have any hands-on training, please call our office before you enroll. Textbooks Required: Information provided on our web site and in your confirmation email.
