Electrical Certification

California Electrical Certification Program

AB 931, signed by former Governor Gray Davis in October 1999 required the Division of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS) to "establish and validate minimum standards for the competency and training of electricians…" Although the deadline for developing the regulations to implement this statute was originally January 1, 2001, the Legislature extended the time for the DAS to develop regulations until July 1, 2001. The actual testing and certification began in December, 2002. Thompson/Prometric is the testing contractor hired by the DAS to administer the actual test.

As of January 1, 2006 in order to work on electrical systems over 100 volt amps for a C-10 contractor in the State of California you must be in one of three categories.  These categories are:
