Hands working with tools

According to the Massachusetts State Board of Electrical Examiners, before you take the licensing exam you must complete:

  • 8000 HOURS OF EMPLOYMENT (approximately 4 years) as an apprentice under the direct supervision of a holder of a MA Class B Journeyman's license and
  • 600 HOURS OF CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION in electrical code and theory from an approved school based on the current National Electrical Code.
