Kraze, then you are in the same position a NY State. There is NO statewide licensing requirement. Every town/village/city has it's own requirements. Some require licensing, some don't. It is UP TO YOU to determine which is which. You need to go to each area you intend to work and find out the real answers. THIS is what I meant when I said maybe someone local to you may come along and know what's what.


Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.

Thanks for steering me in right direction

Thank you Speedy,

I do understand now, I didn't understand what you meant by that. You are correct, I did call several municipalities and one said I can take simple test off 99 NEC, and I'll be able to be issued a license. Then others said that if I hold a license with this municipality all I have to do is get a letter from this guy with my test scores and they will issue me a license with no further testing, Then I called different places in Maryland and they said basically same, that if I hold a city license in another state then they can do a transfer and as long as I get a certified letter stating I do hold a current license. I'm relieved I wont' have to work for 5 years under a master,

Thank you guys soo much for steering me in the right path,

I do appreciate it
