Welcome to the Limited Energy Resource Center
WE'VE GOT SOME GOOD NEWS - WE'VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS. The Oregon Building Codes Division has DRASTICLLY LOWERED the CEU requirement for LEA and LEB licensees. Overnight it went from 24 to 8 CEUs. Those 8 CEUs HAVE TO BE IN A CODE CHANGE AND OREGON ELECTRICAL LAW CLASS. We are offering both classroom courses and On-Line course for the Oregon Electrical Code for 2008 starting as soon as the state approves the new code. Meanwhile we still have the 2005 code changes class On-Line
NOW FOR THE BAD NEWS. The Oregon Legislators passed a bill during the 2007 session that dropped the LEA license requirement from 4 years apprenticeship to 3 years. Yes it means it will be easier to qualify for the license, AND YES it means that the average person testing will have less background and training than before. SO MUCH FOR OREGONS LIMITED ENERGY LICENSE BEING TOP IN THE U.S. FOR TRAINING AND KNOWLEDGE.
2011 NEC Changes classes will be starting soon!!! They will be offered both in a classroom setting and on line. Most of the same states that certified us for the 2008 Code changes will be on for the 2011 NEC Code Change classes.
Check the UPCOMING CLASSES page for a list of scheduled classes. Look up your instructor on the INSTRUCTOR page to have them set up a class in your area.
Limited Energy Resource Center has added new CEU classes to its website including a ever growing of states for the 2008 NEC classes. LERC is now offering license prep courses for both Oregon and Tennessee, and a class for West Virginia that cuts your apprenticeship in half. These courses, dependent on the state, will qualify a person to sit for the state exam, and in some cases, our certificate will qualify them for their license without a state exam. Keep a eye on the on-line courses for this new group of courses. We would like to thank the Washington Burglar and Fire Alarm Association for choosing LERC as the host for their apprenticeship training courses.
Our courses are recognized in many states for electrical license renewal for all electrical licenses whether limited energy electrical or general electrical. Our instructors collectively have over 100 years of experience and each have taught for many years both in the college environment and in adult education.
