Please Be Aware:
ULSTER COUNTY ELECTRICAL LICENSING
THE LAW HAS BEEN ADOPTED AND WILL BE IN EFFECT ON 01-01-22
Attention, Electricians: We need your help to insure a smooth transition
If you are currently doing electrical work in Ulster County and are planning on
continuing to do so, your time is running out to obtain an Ulster County electrical license.
Although you have until the end of this year (2021), it is wise to apply now. It takes time to
process your application, approve it, and either grant a license, deny a license, or schedule a
time for you to take the exam. If you fail the exam and need to be re-tested, additional time
for studying would be required.
Because both the City of Kingston & the Village of Saugerties are located in Ulster
County, this pertains to City of Kingston and Village of Saugerties license holders as well. If you
hold one of these licenses, you will also need an Ulster County license in order to continue
working in the City, the Village and all the other municipalities.
If you qualify for the grandfather provision, you must still submit an application with
payment and proof of insurance, in order to receive a license. This will not just be issued to you

not in affect at the time of the inception of the project.
