The requirement in NC is based on number of hours worked. You must meet
this requirement in order to take the test. The experience also had to be
on NEC applicable work. Telecom or military experience may not be enough.
A friend of mine wanted to take the plumbing test, and they wanted to see
W-2s as proof he worked in the trade. They make the requirements
difficult enough to weed out those not serious.
ya know whats funny, a bseet probably better prepares you to become a master
electrician than a bsee would. in any case, once you know the basics its
more about learning the code than anything...
So whats wrong with 5000 hours and paying union dues?
Did you ever think there are reasons why licenensing boards have hourly
A good friend of mine once said "stick with what you know".
Studing the NEC will not make you and electrician. Understanding the
requirements of the NEC and practical appliction are two very different
things. The NEc will tell you where to mount a panel but they won't tell
you how to do it . There is a lot more to know then just the NEC.
ya you are right. nobody could possibly learn anyhing well enough to do it
without paying their union dues. and a panel, jeez, that must take what, at
least 1000 of those hours just by itself.
what was i thinking.
