Default New to NYC. Electrical Training School>

I was told that if one wanted to get a Master License here in NYC, you HAD to go to the "Electrical Training School in Manhattan. I have my years (7 1/2) but this is a very expensive intense school! I already missed the first few weeks too. Any advice on getting licensed without this course? Thanks

If you have to go to school to be qualified to take the test then do the school if you don't and can just take the test then take the test..

NYC test is very unique and not you're everyday code questions, and calculations. The school knows this, knows what the test is based on, and will help you every single step of the way to apply for it, take it, pass it, and then get your license. Once you see the info and assistance you get there, you will be thankful you went. New classes start in June, so get in on that one.

Is the test that hard or is this just another case of NYC corruption?

The last time I checked it was 800 dollars just for the application fee to see if your worthy to take the test..

Yes,it is NYC at its best....and if you do pass,and get licensed,you have to pay someone to just jockey your truck all day.....easier and better ways to make a living....
