24 DE Admin. Code 1400
Pursuant to 24 Del.C. §1406(a)(1), the Delaware Board of Electrical Examiners has proposed revisions to its rules and regulations. The rules pertaining to crimes substantially related to the practice of electrical services are proposed to be amended.
In accordance with 29 Del.C. §10118(a), the final date to receive written comments will be March 16, 2017, 15 days following the public hearing.
2.3 Applications approved for testing will be valid for two years from the date approved for examination. If the test is not taken, the application is destroyed. Thereafter, an applicant must resubmit a current application with the appropriate fee.
3.3 The requirement of two years of technical training under 24 Del.C. §1408 (a)(1)(c) can be met by successful completion of two years of technical training related to electrical technology in a vocational/technical high school or by completion of 48 credit hours in technical training related to electrical technology at an accredited post-secondary school.
3.4 The experience necessary under 24 Del.C. §1408 to qualify for a particular license must relate to the activity authorized by such a license as defined in 24 Del.C. §1402(10) - (13).
7.6 An individual whose license has expired for more than one year must reapply as a new applicant. Any prior training and experience can be used to satisfy the requirements under 24 Del.C. §1408(a). However, the applicant must take the examination required by §1408(5) and achieve a passing score unless he or she previously passed an approved licensure test that covered the National Electric Code that is the standard in Delaware at the time of the new application.
8.2 Courses must be approved by the Board in order to qualify as CE. Approved courses appear on the website of the Division of Professional Regulation at www.dpr.delaware.gov. Licensees may also contact the Administrative Specialist of the Board at the Division of Professional Regulation to determine whether particular courses have been approved.
8.4 Journeypersons and Apprentice Electricians shall complete 5 hours of approved CE during each renewal period with the following exceptions – a person licensed less than one year does not need to complete CE at the first renewal; a person licensed one year but less than two years must submit 2 CE hours at the first renewal. Apprentice training (proof of enrollment in a Board approved apprenticeship program) will count towards CE hours during that licensure period.
9.1 A procedure permitting temporary practice after loss of a licensee to avoid business interruption is provided in 24 Del.C. §1418 and is necessary only where there is no currently employed licensee to assume the duties of the former license holder.
11.1 An applicant for licensure by reciprocity shall complete an application approved by the Board and cause a certificate of good standing to be sent to the Board from the licensing agencies of all jurisdictions where the applicant is or has been licensed. Upon request an applicant for licensure under this provision must submit to the Board a copy of reciprocal state’s current licensure requirements.
12.3 A licensee who signs an application for inspection form is deemed to have authorized and shall be responsible for the work described in the form.
13.2.4 Complaint officer - The complaint officer shall be a member who works with the investigator of the Division of Professional Regulation when complaints are investigated pursuant to 29 Del.C. §8807. The complaint officer shall report to the Board when complaints are closed and recuse himself or herself from participating in disciplinary hearings involving matters that have been reviewed in his or her capacity as complaint officer.
15.1 Inspection agencies shall be licensed in accord with the provisions of 24 Del.C. §1421 in order to operate in Delaware. An application on a form approved by the Board must be filed at the Division of Professional Regulation. Licenses must be renewed annually on June 30 by completing the renewal form and paying the fee determined by the Division.
15.3 Inspection agencies must submit, to the Division of Professional Regulation, the names of its employees who are inspectors and proof of compliance with the statutory requirements for inspectors. Inspectors must have seven years of experience in residential, commercial, or industrial wiring. Proof of experience shall be submitted by affidavit of the named employer, a tax form W-2, or tax Schedule C. The experience requirement for an inspector employed by an approved inspection agency on July 20, 1999 is satisfied with seven years of inspection experience. Each inspector shall also submit a passing score for the Electrical one and two family dwelling and the Electrical General examinations within 18 months of employment and the Electrical Plan Review examination within 24 months of employment. For inspectors employed by the inspection agency on July 20, 1999, the time for taking said examinations shall run from the date these regulations become effective and not the date first employed.
15.5 If a violation found in an inspection is not corrected within 15 days as provided in 24 Del.C. §1421(g), the inspection agency shall notify the Board in writing and include a copy of the notice of violation. The Division of Professional Regulation will send, on behalf of the Board, the notice of violation to the other inspection agencies and to any local building inspector having jurisdiction over the structure.
15.7 As used in 24 Del.C. §1421(j), “salary” means compensation of employees at a set figure with installments paid weekly, monthly, or other fixed period or compensation based on time worked, i.e. paid by the hour. “Salary” does not include compensation based on the number of inspections performed. Inspectors may not be compensated based on the number of inspections performed or given any other incentive to increase the speed at which they perform inspections.
