The primary concern of the IAEI is consumer safety. Knowing that mishandling electricity can become extremely dangerous, perhaps even fatal, the IAEI and its members are committed to improving design, installation, inspection, and usage of this energy. Education is one of the best methods for improving safety.
The Rocky Mountain Chapter of the IAEI is an organization devoted to education in the electrical field.
The Chapter holds various educational seminars throughout the year.

Its members consist of:
- Electrical inspectors
- Electrical engineers

The Chapter has annual meetings in Denver, Colorado in March. This year’s annual meeting is March 17 & 18, 2016. The Wyoming Chapter has its annual meeting in May, held in Thermopolis. Both meetings have numerous trade booths, as well as code forum discussions and informative class subjects.
The state legislature has passed a new bill regarding continuing education for electricians!! Starting on June 30, 2017, you will no longer be taking the Continuing Competency Assessment. But…You still need to complete existing PDU requirements from your last assessment in order to renew your license in 2017. In the license cycle 2017-2020 you will need to complete 24 hours of continuing education. The state is still working on the exact requirements for those 24 hours so please check in occasionally to see if those have been decided.
