Default Low voltage hours count towards J card?

I'm a first year apprentice doing commercial new construction. We subcontracted the fire alarms out to a low voltage company and lead man was talking about taking me on of I wanted. I said I'd think about it but now I'm wondering if the hours doing fire alarms and data count towards the hours needed to get a journeyman's license.
Thanks in advance.

In Canada electricians install the fire alarm wires and equipment.

If you're talking about an unlimited Electrical Contractor (EC) state license to be an electrical contractor, the answer is no. You need to work as an electrician including three phase power.

There are some Electrical Specialty (ES) licenses available for those who want to engage in contracting for this work. Examples include limited energy, alarms, electric signs, etc.

Florida does not have a statewide electrical journeyman requirement (unless something has changed recently).

You can find more information about electrical contractor state licensing in Florida at http://www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr...on_by_Exam.pdf

If you're talking about a journeyman at the county level, you need to read up on the requirements for the county in which you seek licensing.
