Get Hired by an Electrical Contractor & Enroll in Our Electrical Apprenticeship Program
After you've been hired by an electrical contractor, enroll in the Electrical Association's Apprenticeship Training. Minnesota does not require apprentice electricians to attend training, but this training can greatly increase an employee's skills that can immediately be used on the job as well as eventually used to pass the journeyworker licensing exam.
Minnesota requires all apprentice electricians to register with the MN Department of Labor as a registered unlicensed electrician
BEFORE performing any electrical work! Learn more
If an apprentice is not registered, their hours worked are not counted towards the 8000 hours of experience required to sit for the journeyworker licensing exam.
REQUIRED--Fulfill Continuing Education!
As a registered unlicensed electrician in Minnesota, you will need 2 hours of continuing education per year to maintain your license. Class Schedule
