Schedule 40 PVC in Chicago?

...and Missouri does not require an electricians license at a state level.
LOL...Missouri can be a PITA. Each county has their own licensing I think, right?? And from what I've heard some counties don't recognize the next counties license, so if you want to work in both, you have to test out in both....??

I'm asking, not telling...this is all just hear-say

Schedule 40 PVC in Chicago?


Perhaps it's a comprehension issue, or just poor training, but last time I checked Chicago WAS NOT A STATE!

Might that be a state CONTRACTORS license?

WHy would Missouri require a state license for hair braiding, but not Electrical work?

This is outright insane O.O

And regarding Illinois, per City of Chicago, you need an Illinois Electricians License to apply for the City of Chicago Electrical Contractors License, and the City of Chicago Circuit Breaker License. So I really don't see how that would work if Illinois doesn't have a Electricians License?

Also, per your website you posted, Illinois, like Missouri, also requires state licensure to do hair braiding, and Illinois requires a state license for Fast Food Production (wth?) But it doesn't mention Electrical Licensure? This is making no sense. O.O

For the most part it's as you say....the counties are pretty independant. But back in Illinois it went far beyond that. Electricians there must be acknowledged by the county and the city before they can work there. A fee for this and a fee for that. But by far Cook county is the worst, and Lake county next in line.

No **** , but per the CITY OF CHICAGO for an Electric Contractors License, you need a STATE OF ILLINOIS ELECTRICIANS LICENSE to APPLY for the City of Chicago's Electrical Contractors License, and the City of Chicago Circuit Breaker LIcense (which doesn't make sense considering circuitbreakers are a part of an Electricians scope)

City of Chicago's website says a copy of your Illinois State Electricians License is required to accompany application for your City of Chicago Electrical Contractors License.

So, how do you submit a copy of your Illinois State Electricians License with your City of Chicago Electrical Contractors License Application, when, you "can't" get a State of Illinois Electricians License?

How the h*** does that work again?

All I know of IL is southern IL (downstate, as the folks from up north say)...around here they are fairly lax AFAIK.

Sounds like a PITA no matter what, lol.



By the way, when I get my hair braided, especially in a fast food production plant, I absolutely require my braiding technician to produce his or her license for my review.

You get your hair braided?

That makes a lot of sense now...



But it's literally ridiculous, but no, the license is to work in a fast food joint, you need a state license to work at McDonalds in Illinois XD That's made my entire evening.

"I have to study for my state test tomorrow"
"what's the test for Johnny?"
"Fast Food License for McDonalds"
"...."

LOL!

Chicago only allows union electricians....and only union electricians are allowed to get an Illinois Electrician License...Do the math.

That's why this state doesn't issue a state electrician's license. Illinois State electrician licenses are issued by the IBEW.
