Electrical Board: Program Information

Joyce Young, Program Director

The State Electrical Board licenses, registers, and regulates electricians, apprentices, and electrical contractors. The Board does not regulate communication systems, elevators or passenger conveyors, bridge or highway projects, or data processing systems. 

The Board's mission is to protect the health and safety of the people of Colorado by enforcing the state electrical statutes. The Board conducts regular inspections of the installations it regulates, and reviews special requests for exceptions to the code. 

The Board is made up of nine professional and public members appointed by the governor consisting of the following:

  • two electrical contractors with master electrician licenses
  • two master or journeymen electricians who are not electrical contractors
  • one representative of a private, municipal, or cooperative electric utilities-rending service to the public
  • one building official who performs electrical inspections
  • one general contractor
  • two members appointed from the public at large
