I am not licensed in Hampstead; however, I called Long beach and they told me that the practical or board portion is just an interview process they might ask question of what you do in particular situation or just to see if you have your head on straight. I am not positive as the gentleman I talked to did not sound too sure of himself. I suggest dressing up for the occasion probably in a nice business suit to really set the impression that you know what you are doing. If you have good experience and passed the written Hampstead exam which is supposable easier than the Long beach exam then I don't think you will have a problem. I called (516)431-1000 they sent me to the building dempartment where I found out this info.

I hope this helps.

Is the owner of Frank Electric still on the licensing board ? Nassau sucks, 17 licenses to complete the county, and you hope you're a Nassau resident. As a suffolk res w/ that hemp I find it easier to pay off friends for some of these stupid villages and cities that hold their own . Good luck.

Maybe the SCECA will grow a pair of balls and ask their "brothers" about reciprocating across county lines.

It sucks when you use the same NEC and same inspection agency and you need a passport to work there.

Suffolk is heading in the same direction, with political correctness of course... The Southhampton yearly work permit with sticker that must be displayed. I'm sure Smithtown will follow eventually. Now here's one for you island guys who are familiar with Islips beauty codes. Recently bid a new home on Ocean Ave. , complete with UG service. Noticed the cut throat electrician installed an OH service....How ????

I would gladly pay a fee to work in a Nassau Town.. you could call it a Electric Permit that is good for only (1) time for $50.00, using my Suffolk License as certification.

I live in Islip Town and I never heard of the beauty code you speak of.

If the other EC put a OH service and it is connected, you were mis- informed by someone.

Smithtown already requires a building permit to do electrical work and the other towns in Suffolk will soon follow.

All these "fees" just get passed onto the customer and is included in pricing the job.

Funny you said that, it cost me $350 a while back to get a onetime license in Scranton ,PA using my Suffolk county license. Islip has had a code for the past 3 years or so that all new services on new residential (and probably commercial) structures be installed underground. Go figuire, a UG service in Brentwood, The island is a jungle for survival. The Smithtown law can sometimes be a problem concerning commercial work, you will find that for something as simple as setting a pole, running a drop, and installing a mast the town will require archetectural drawn plans. Throws a wrench in your plans and profits .

I agree! Wish NYC license was reciprocal with Nassau and Suffolk too.

Question electrical exam town of hempstead n.y.

I never knew that agencies were involved in anything more than competent inspections.
You use as many or as few as you are comfortable with.That is actually good buisness.
I'd get chills from anyone who promised anything more than a qualified inspection...,I mean...,if they 've got you thinking you're under their thumb..,well what would happen if that agency got upset with you.
You should count on the fact that you do good work these days--not that you use 1 agency.
What would happen if that agency suddenly goes in a different direction
and you've got all "Your Eggs" in that vanishing basket?

If you are not a resident of Nassau County... they will do everything possible to keep you out... they don't want anymore competition...

Default Oyster Bay

I took the Oyster Bay. First time they sent me a letter I failed at like 65% (I forgot the exact number). I put in for a review and they sent back I have to put in a FOIL request. I did that and they scheduled a review. When I got there the chairman sat with me. He gave me the answer page with my answers but without the questions. I said, "No questions! Is this a joke?" He answered that they can't share the questions because they still use that version of the test. Basically, take it or leave it. I saw they had changed my score from the first letter to an 81%. I went through the wrong answers and I was able to remember the questions. I challenged their answers but to no avail. The next time I took the Exam I got a 98%. I have a small idea why they marked me wrong because of a word "far" which is not defined in the code. So, correcting this one this would be a fight. They then wrote me saying I have to send in money for the practical. They responded that they don't have the 2013 schedule yet they will notify me when I am scheduled. That was a few months ago. All this is a joke. If I lived in Hempstead (where I have a license) and had my business in Hempstead for two years by law they would have to reciprocate. Since when does where a person have his business make a difference in their qualifications? I will take their practical and pass it. Somehow the system in Nassau is going to have to change. It would be a good idea to change the system for the entire state of New York, also.
