Do you have to go to a Trade School to become an electrician in Philly?
I am interested in becoming a Licensed Electrician in Philadelphia. The problem is Licenses and Inspections isn't giving me a straight answer and the ratings for those Trade schools are horrible? Anyone familiar with the steps/stages needed to become an Electrician/requirement before taking an examination for the city of Philadelphia?

The short answer is NO, but you do need xxx amount of hours, it has been a few years since I got mine but I think you need 4 years of experience but I may be off.
Philadelphia is a nightmare to pull permits, I have often thought about handing my license in since they are such a mess down there

Thanks. I heard something like, you can take a test for the certification after taking classes and then after 4 years experience/8,000 hrs logged, you can try for the license. At least that was what one Trade school told me while the other said that I can try for both the certification and license after completely. It's a different story with every trade school.
Really, I didn't realize it was such a pain to pull permits in Philly. Thanks so much for the hears up, Wiz.
