STUDENTS MUST HAVE A BOOK FOR CLASS.

Completion of the Continuing Education Courses at SLCC does not guarantee the ability to obtain a Utah state electrician’s license to practice as an electrician.  Licensure is the exclusive right and responsibility of each state.  In order to practice as an Electrician, students must satisfy individual state requirements, independent of SLCC requirements.  It is highly recommended that students consult in advance with the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL), or similar agencies in other states, to find out more about eligibility for licensure.  DOPL can be reached at 801-530-6628 or at their website.

For students who plan to work as an Electrician in another state, here is one suggested website for researching state licensure requirements: License Finder sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor. If you have difficulty finding the licensure requirements for your state, please contact your Program Manager or SLCC’s state authorization coordinator for help.
