Default ct low voltage licensing

hey guys new guy here from ct. i was wondering about getting my low voltage license from ct, i have all schooling and have held a public service telephone lisc. for almost 15yrs from working at at&t. so according to the state i qualify for the exam. i was wondering about the exam and how hard it is and what do i really need to brush up on, since i'm sure my knowledge of low voltage work is very different than what they will probably be looking for. i plan on getting a copy of the nec manual. can anyone give me some good insight on what to study up for, since at&t is very unstable these days and i'm not too sure what will happen after this next contract i need to look forward a bit just in case i may be out of work. thanks for any insight.

I can't help you with CT licensing, but I have a question for you. I just retired from AT&T in Kansas after 32 years, no license. Did you have your public service telephone license before hiring on with AT&T, or did you get afterwards? I know what you are saying about the future of AT&T and wish you the best. I would like to start a LV wiring company and I am checking out all the legalities. Welcome to the Forum

ty wrapp in ct you need to be licensed for lv work. i didn't have my lisc b4 working at at&t they give you the public service lisc. to cover you while working for at&t only, hence why if i want to continue working lv i need the lisc. in ct there are a bunch of different lv catagories depending on the scope of work and they have a contractor liscense which if you want to own a business you need that lisc and they also have a journey person lisc. congrats on retirement i was hoping to make it that long myself. i started as a install/repair tech, then transferred to splicing hoping to use my education to go up a notch to engineering, but theses days it feels like i'll probably be back at the bottom as a prem tech after the next contract.
