Electrical Continuing Education

Check Your NC Continuing Education Credits

For NC Licensees, effective July 1, 2008, one-half of continuing education requirements must be obtained by an in-person classroom or seminar setting. The other half of continuing education hours may be obtained by other means, such as online testing, mail order tests, etc. Licensees may carry forward continuing education credit hours for use in two future license periods. If you need 8 hours of continuing education per year, we suggest that you take 2 of our online or mail order tests (4 hours each) along with an 8 hour class for a total of 16 credit hours that will cover 2 years of continuing education requirements.

Classroom Continuing Education

CECA is very pleased that our Continuing Education Instructor, Tim Walker, was named 2011 Instructor of the Year by the NC Electrical Board. The presentation was made at the 2012 NC Electrical Institute in Raleigh NC.

Tim Walker is a 30 year veteran of the North Carolina Charlotte-Mecklenburg County Inspection Department. He has worked in Charlottes’ city high-rise section most of that time. Tim and his wife Mary enjoy traveling since his retirement. They are now taking care of their wonderful new grandson (Bradley) and have slowed down just a bit.

Tim was also a Naval Reservist for 25 years; a Huey air crewman, a crew chief, door gunner and SAR wet crewman (Retired). The squadron was HAL-4 the REDWOLFS.

Tim has taught classes at CPCC (Central Piedmont Community College) since 1981. He also taught classes for homeowners on how to wire their own homes. This class was also used for ‘green’ electrical helpers. He has also taught second and fourth-year apprenticeship classes and code seminars for electricians taking their state exams. He has been certified by North Carolina Department of Insurance to teach classes for Electrical Inspectors and by North Carolina State Electrical Board to instruct continuing education for state contractors. We are proud to have Tim as an instructor for our continuing education classes.

Check out what people are saying about our continuing education class:

  • “This was my first class with Tim (Walker) – Thoroughly impressed.”
  • “Tim was very knowledgeable, yet informal enough to make this a very informative and interesting class”
