Code change information for providers

2020 OESC and 2020 OPSC continuing education

The division anticipates adoption of the 2020 Oregon Electrical Specialty Code (OESC) and the 2020 Oregon Plumbing Specialty Code (OPSC) in October 2020. Continuing education providers who wish to provide 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.

Provider and course applications

The appropriate board approves all providers, instructors, and courses.

Instructor application - Individuals or businesses seeking to provide continuing education courses must submit an instructor application for approval to become a provider.

Course application - Providers must submit one for each continuing education course.

Important submission dates - If received by the submittal deadline, your applications will go before the appropriate board on the corresponding board meeting date.

Instructor and course applications may be submitted together and at any time during a three-year code cycle.

Online providers

Online providers must provide one of the following for web-based content:

  • A link to the online course content with login information (if content is secured); or
  • Screenshots of the online course content.

Approval process

Continuing education committees

Applications are reviewed by a committee approximately six weeks before a board meeting.

Board approval

The board will take a final action on the recommendation from the continuing education committee.

The division will notify the applicant of the Board's decision.

Previously approved providers may be asked to periodically provide an updated working/teaching history, appropriate license, and relevant education degrees, if applicable.

Submitting attendance rosters

Providers must electronically submit attendance rosters to the division in an excel spreadsheet. It is important to follow specific instructions specified in the Excel roster instructions.

*Note: The division no longer accepts original rosters, copies of rosters, emails listing attendees, or any format other than the Excel spreadsheet.

Provider requirements

  • Providers must document course completion and give proof to each attendee.
  • For multi-part courses, instructors must provide the names of individuals only after they have completed all parts of the course, unless parts or a combination of parts are approved separately.
  • A civil penalty may be issued or other action taken, including revocation of approval of a continuing education course or instructor, for failure to meet the requirements.
