In NYC you get 2 Years (out of Seven and Half) for having a Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering. Eliminate Confusion Through Education.

Yoyizit (Post #37) Especially in NYC, you can't get past the requirement of 7 1/2 years of field experience. And that has to be proven through the Income tax records + a letter from the employer/s. You can convince the Electrical Board that you're the greatest Engineer in the world and that you were the best student in class, and that even your Mommy says so. Many have tried. That's why the license is so valuable. Additionally, the Board checks out the character of the Applicant. (No matter what) Don't Drink and Drive, Ever!!!

I saw that too but it surely didn't stop us from spending 3 or 4 pages to talk about it though.

Because that topic (getting your Electrical contractor's License) is touching a nerve with a lot of folks. (No matter what)Don't Drink and Drive!!! (And let's give those "Smilies" a well deserved rest. (Mainly talking to myself) (a/o to your Rhetorical question)
