The division anticipates adoption of the 2020 Oregon Electrical Specialty Code (OESC) and the 2020 Oregon Plumbing Specialty Code (OPSC) in October 2020. Providers who wish to offer code change courses based on the new model code may submit applications after adoption of the code, or may request approval directly to the appropriate board.
Only board approved courses will be accepted. Providers and licensees should ensure classes are approved in order to receive course credit. Only credits from approved courses and providers can be applied to a license, and providers should ensure adequate time to receive board approval before offering courses.
New OESC Update
The Electrical and Elevator Board has started the code adoption process for the 2020 OESC, based on the 2020 National Electrical Code (NEC). The board has decided to begin accepting applications for code related and code change courses based on the 2020 NEC, taught on or after Sept. 1, 2019, for the 2020 OESC cycle.
The 2017 OESC cycle is anticipated to conclude on Oct. 1, 2020. All continuing education courses approved for the 2017 OESC will no longer be eligible for continuing education credit once the 2020 OESC becomes effective.
