Default california c10 lincense can pull a low voltage permit?

low voltage guys at my job site were going to install the system this week but didn't come. the general contractor was upset and asked me to run wire and install speakers, cameras and network. I finished it today.

the problem is the inspector is going to check a permit in my area. I would like to know that I can pull a c7 permit with a c10 license

thank you

A C-10 can install lovo, but a C-7 can't (isn't supposed to) install switchgear. How did you go from a "4th sem. student" to a C-10? Student of what?

He's working under someone else's C-10.

Every C-10 knows that he can work low voltage. It's the general license.

Why do you need a permit to install low voltage? I understand it is a required license in many states, but what are they inspecting?

Datacom, installed as bad as possible, is never a hazard. Even if the speakers are 70v, I fail to see a hazard.

Cash grab.

The inspectors in our jurisdiction look for cabling supported and not laying on ceiling grid or sprinkler/ other systems.
The look for plenum rated cables where required.
They look at firewall penetrations.
And, the rack has to be bonded.

Any unused cables have to be removed.

Those unlicensed, unpermitted, camera and data cables tossers can screw up a building pretty quick. We try to use a color that they don't have access to at Home Depot if we are getting inspected. For us, the wiring is the job, to them, the cables are incidental.

This sounds like most 1/2 watts in my neck of the woods. Come in throw their wires everywhere and leave a king sized mess of the job.

Interesting. All the things you mentioned are inspected here, but as part of building, no low voltage regulation at all. (Except security/fire)

Actually, I have around 7yr experience in commercial and residential field but 2-3 years ago I started to attend a trade school for a degree and wanted to learn motor systems.
I don't have a c10 licence yet but my boss. My boss was not sure about the low voltage license b/c once we had got subcontract for installing data cables in hilton hotel. I am not sure who gc or inspector but they asked to see a c7 instread of c10.

actually the inspector didn't check any at this jobsite except the permit. However, they often check that we put wires thru emt these days so gc asked us to install emts
