SB17-247 - Electricians Inspectors Licensing Qualifications

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the qualifications of electricians, and, in connection therewith, allowing only persons who have passed the written residential wireman's examination to act as residential inspectors and waiving the continuing education requirement during the first license period for an electrician who passed the appropriate written examination.

Beginning January 1, 2019, section 1 of the bill waives the continuing education requirement, otherwise applicable upon every renewal or reinstatement of an electrician's license, for the first renewal or reinstatement of the license of an electrician who passed the appropriate written examination in connection with his or her initial license application.

Section 2 phases out an existing provision allowing the hiring of inspectors of 1- to 4-family dwellings who have specified certifications and experience but may not have passed Colorado's written residential wireman's examination. The provision is repealed as of January 1, 2019, except for inspectors hired on or before that date by a city, town, county, or city and county who meet the existing requirements. Those individuals have until January 1, 2023, to meet the new requirements.
(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
