Examination for Registration as Grade C Electrical Worker

As stipulated in the Electricity Ordinance (Cap. 406), all electrical workers engaged in electrical work on fixed electrical installation are required to be registered with the Electrical & Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administration Region. This is to ensure that electrical work is carried out by qualified electricians to improve electrical safety.

1.2 To be qualified for registration as a Grade C electrical worker, applicants without formal academic qualification are required to pass an examination approved by the Director.  EMSD, the University of Hong Kong (HKU), the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HKPU) and the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) have jointly organized an “Examination for Registration as a Grade C Electrical Worker” for those who have sufficient years of practical experience in electrical work but without the recognized academic qualifications and wish to apply for registration as Grade C electrical workers.

The examination serves to assess an electrical worker’s knowledge in electrical work including the design, installation and maintenance works on any low voltage fixed electrical installation of any current capacity.
