EDUCATION HOUR REQUIREMENTS FOR CONTRACTORS WITH JEFFERSON COUNTY & CITY OF ST. LOUIS

 

Update on Jefferson County – Minimum of 8 JC approved contact hours to renew your license-

What this means for Jefferson County Contractors for the new cycle…

    *Contractors need 8 contact hours of code review in a 3-year license cycle (January 1, 2019-December 31, 2021 is current cycle). Courses must still be Jefferson County approved courses. No carry-over of hours into next cycle.

     *It’s YOUR responsibility to take your class certificate/letter to Jefferson County WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM END OF CLASS/SEMINAR (not hold them until end of cycle)  to Laurie McAllister.   We also recommend that you keep copies of each in your own Jefferson County contact hours file to have on hand.

     *You must also make sure that the education class/seminar you plan to take has been been pre-approved by Jefferson County (or they will not accept your class hours).  EBMI has had all of our classes/instructors approved for this new (and old) cycle, but it’s best to inquire prior to taking seminars.  Call Jefferson County if you are unsure if your classes/seminars have been pre-approved by a particular organization.  Check out EBMI’s list of classes/seminars to help you obtain your JC hours early.

Update on City of St. Louis education requirements for license renewal EACH YEAR-

Per Rick Heyman’s letter on December 21, 2018 to all electrical and industrial-maintenance license holders — they will now need to provide proof of continuing education or education on the current adopted code. A minimum of 8 classroom hours is required at time of their annual license renewal. If you are concerned on whether or not a class/seminar will be accepted, please call their office at 314/622-3313 and ask for Felitia Richmond. It must be code-related class/seminar. In the past, they have only required CEU’s every 3 years with the code cycle. As per ordinance section 80.21.5, it is now required ANNUALLY at time of renewal. This became effective February 2019. Please keep copies of all certificates/forms at your company before turning into the city.
