Oregon Electrical License

An education from your local IEC training center is the key to getting your Oregon electrical license.

The state of Oregon is a popular destination for those looking for a better life, or to experience some incredibly diverse topography. The state, which sits in a corner of the Pacific Northwest, has deep green forests, volcanoes, deserts, and many bodies of water, including its Western border of the Pacific Ocean. To the North is the state of Washington. To the East is Idaho. To the South is California and Nevada. Technology, agriculture, and the fishing and hydroelectric power industries are driving forces for the state economy, which also calls Nike home.

Oregon is a great home state for those seeking to create a career in the electrical field. Following is the basic list of requirements for acquiring your Oregon electrical license:

  • Completion of a two-year electrical apprenticeship or proof of equivalent work experience.
  • 4,000 hours of work experience, which corresponds to 2 years.
  • Proof of appropriate classroom training.
  • A high school diploma or equivalent.
  • Passing a written exam.
  • Signed approval of a general supervising electrician and his license number.

In other words...you’ve got to be trained, and you’ve got to have someone who is qualified tell the state that you know what you’re doing!

So how do you make this happen?

With an electrical apprenticeship from Independent Electrical Contractors!

Your IEC electrical apprenticeship will result in your becoming a certified electrician by passing the IEC National Certified Professional Electrical Exam. This exam covers the key concepts and practical skills across the four-year IEC Electrical Apprenticeship Program. Competencies on these exams come from the Core Concepts, which appear at the end of each year. Once you pass the exams, you will receive an IEC National Certified Professional Electrician Certificate, wallet card, and recognition from IEC National.

Our programs provide the hands-on technical skills to be successful in today's electrical field. Your education will consist of 8,000 hours of paid training and 576 hours of technical classroom instruction.
