3 Steps to Renewing Your Texas Electrical License

3 Steps to Renewing Your Texas Electrical License

You need to renew your Texas Electrical License every year to work as an electrician in Texas legally. Working with an expired license can result in expensive fines and even criminal charges. Thankfully, it takes only 3 easy steps to renew your Texas Electrical License with 1st Choice's affordable continuing education course.

1. Find Out When Your Electrical License Expires

Your Texas Electrical License must be renewed annually. You should know when your license expires so you can plan when to begin the renewal process. If you don’t remember the date, you can go to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) website and enter your license details to find out when your license was first issued. It expires on that same date every year.

2. Enroll in Continuing Education

The state of Texas requires all licensed electricians to complete 4 hours of officially approved continuing education to renew their licenses each year.

1st Choice offers an online continuing education course for Texas electricians for a one-time price of only $27.99. We comply with government guidelines and cover relevant and up to date topics, such as the most recent Electrical Code and Texas laws and regulations. There are absolutely no quizzes or exams; it’s all about getting the information you need to get back to work.

We offer courses for electricians at all levels of experience--apprentice, journeyman, master, and contractor. It is entirely remote and designed to be completed however works best for you.
