The NEC test for Virginia meets the requirements of the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation for the Commonwealth of Virginia. The test for VA is good for 3 credit hours, which satisfies the Virginia requirement of 3 credit hours during the two year term of the license.

While the requirement is still that each licensee must have 8 hours of continuing education, starting in July 1 2008 the new annual requirement is that 4 of the hours must be obtained from a classroom setting and the other 4 hours may be obtained by several means including tests (online and paper form).
