Electrical Contractor License

Electrical Contractor License from $279
Overview

The Electrical Contractor industry is heavily regulated by both state and local authorities throughout the country. Each authority has unique licensing laws and application requirements. Generally, licensing agencies, whether state or local, issue Electrical Contractor licenses, Master Electrician licenses, Journeyman Electrician licenses, and Apprentice Electrician licenses. Given our experience regarding specific jurisdictional requirements, LicenseLogix can streamline the process of determining and obtaining the proper licenses for your business. We provide comprehensive research on your licensing requirements and prepare error-free

application packets, minimizing time-consuming and costly delays.

Background

Due to the risk of harmful error when it comes to electrical contracting work, both state and local authorities have a strong interest in regulating the industry. Extensive licensing requirements seek to reduce this risk by implementing minimum standards of competency and insurance coverage. Many states have an Electrical Contractors Board or Board of Electrical Examiners which administers examinations and issues licenses. Other states issue specialty contractor licenses to electrical contractors through their General Contractors Board. Several states further classify licensees as Limited/Restricted Electrical Contractors, Intermediate Electrical Contractors, or Unlimited/Unrestricted Electrical Contractors, in order to distinguish between the monetary limits of their contracts. Regardless of the specific type of license, each requires varying documentation. This generally includes a fee, proof of experience, examination, course certification, bonding, and/or a certificate of insurance. Several states offer reciprocity with other states, allowing an applicant to waive the examination requirement.

Many states with statewide electrical regulations allow local jurisdictions to adopt their own regulations, which are often more stringent. When Electrical Contractors are not regulated at the state level, they are always regulated, just as heavily, at the local level. Authorities, both state and local, occasionally provide specific licensing exemptions for certain types of electrical businesses, such as low voltage contractors. As such, extensive research is often required in order to comprehensively determine whether or not a license is needed and from whom it can be obtained.

Ramifications of non-compliance

Many states impose serious penalties, ranging from fines to imprisonment, on unlicensed electrical contractors. Furthermore, a contract between a consumer and an unlicensed electrical contractor is not enforceable, which may adversely affect the contractor (inability to collect payment) as well as the consumer (inability to seek retribution against faulty work).
