The New Hampshire Electrician's Board has confirmed that the 2014 National Electrical Code (NEC) will become effective January 1, 2015 and, moreover, that all exams will be on the 2014 NEC starting on October 1, 2014. All New Hampshire licensed master and journeyman electricians will also be required to complete an "approved" 15-hour course on the 2014 NEC between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014 regardless of the licensee's renewal date. See R.S.A. § 319-C:6-c. Each master and journeyman license without verification of the required 2014 NEC continuing education by January 1, 2015 will be invalid until proof of the course is received, and invalid licenses will be treated the same as a lapsed license and subject to the applicable laws for performing electrical installations without being licensed.
