Regarding the Oregon Supervising Electrician Exam

Greetings,  Just wanted to pass along some important information concerning the adoption of the 2023 NEC/OESC and how it impacts the Supervising Electrician exam.

The State is currently accepting code change proposals to the OESC with a scheduled adoption date of 10/01/2023.

Generally, the exam changes to the newly adopted code 3-6 months after the adoption date.  Based upon this information, the expectations are that the Supervising Electrician exam could be  based on the 2023 NEC/OESC as early as January 2024.  

During the 2020 code cycle, it took the State almost 2 years to start basing the exam on the 2020 NEC/OESC. The possibility exists that the same situation may happen here.  After October 1st, 2023, it's best to check with the State to verify which edition of the code is going to be used for exams taken after October 1st, 2023.

Regarding Other Classes

The April 2023 Supervising Electrician Prep course will be the only open class that I will be teaching in 2023, and will be based on the 2020 NEC/OESC.
