Instrumentation Information

EPRI Prep classes for Level A and Level B will be periodically scheduled; Watch this page for details on future classes.

• EPRI Level B recertifying procedures:
If you have worked a total of 1200 hours in instrumentation-type activities within a three-year period, you can renew the certification by submitting documents with these requirements:

  • Presented on company letterhead or another employer-identifying medium.
  • Specify the work hours spent in instrument calibration.
  • Signed by a Management Representative of the employer.

Contact the DEA Director of Education or your RTC for assistance.

If you don’t have the required number of calibration hours and your certification has expired or is about to expire, you can recertify by taking the Level B exam again. You are allowed to use this method up to two years after your Level B certification expires.

You do not have to wait for a scheduled class and exam in order to apply to take the exam; Individual review and exam sessions can be arranged.

Call the DEA office at  (701) 297-5934  if you are interested in this or have any other questions.
