Welcome to our home page. The Maryland State Board of Master Electricians issues one category of license: that of master electrician. For many counties in the state, the master electrician's license is a prerequisite to obtaining the county electrical license. The board does not investigate complaints; that function is the responsibility of the county or local subdivision. The board may take disciplinary action against a person's state license, however, if the person is reprimanded or the person's license is suspended or revoked by the local subdivision.

Please see our education feature to review the list of board-approved continuing education course providers. Additional providers will be added monthly. See current regulations pertaining to continuing education requirements for all electrical licensees.
