Electrical Inspectors? The Office of Education and Data Management requires CT state licensing as an E-1 or E-2 to qualify to sit for an examination to achieve licensing as an Electrical Inspector (EI). Once this is achieved, the EI inspector is required to attend 30 hours of approved continuing education every 3 years to maintain the Electrical Inspector (EI) license. Electrical inspections can also be made by either the Building Official (BO) or the Assistant Building Inspector (ABO), both of which require 90 hours of approved continuing education in a 3 year period.
 
For additional licensing information, please contact the state board or local jurisdiction in which you reside.
