Electrical Continuing Education

Consider taking your Continuing Education with CECA to support YOUR industry.   – CECA is a Nonprofit Trade Association that supports your Electrical Industry in many ways, offering continuing education, supporting Apprentice Events, having a member on the NC Electrical Licensing Board, having a lobbyist in Raleigh to monitor and influence what the legislature does that affects the electrical industry, the construction industry and small businesses. Turn to us with questions, ask for assistance in the electrical industry.  

When you take Continuing Education through CECA, you are helping support your Electrical Industry in the Carolinas.

CECA Continuing Education Classes are approved in NC, Ohio, Virginia and Alabama and accepted by letter in Georgia. 

Check Your NC Continuing Education Credits

For NC Licensees 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.

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.

Our Instructor – Tim Walker is a 30 year veteran of the North Carolina Charlotte-Mecklenburg County Inspection Department. He has worked in Charlotte’s city high-rise section most of that time. Since his retirement for the Inspection Department, Tim and his wife Mary enjoy traveling and spending time with their grandson (Bradley).

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. In addition, Tim taught second and fourth year apprenticeship classes and code seminars in preparation for the 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.
