State of Michigan Electrical Licensing Process

State of Michigan Electrical Licensing - Applying Online Instructions

State of Michigan Online Licensing Portal - This is the link to use to apply online and manager your account.  If you are a Book 2 from out of state, getting a letter from your local would be the best route to go.  Have them write a letter stating how many hours you've worked as a journeyman, when you became a journeyman, and apprenticeship dates if you went through one.

State of Michigan Address Update Instructions - If you've moved, you'll have to update your address so that you'll get your yearly renewal in the mail.
