In 30 minutes I will go before the board of electrical examiners and have my application rejected. Wish me luck. I will fill you guys in on the reasons and story in my inevitable rant.

Ohhhhh shoot. I should have seen this comming.

The only way to make a miracle happen is to set myself up to put my foot in my mouth. I have been accepted despite my very real expectation that I would not be. St. Louis county is so extremely hard to get a license in that I know contractors who have been rejected for years. So I thought insignificant me was for sure never going to be let in. I have however been accepted.
This is great the St. Louis county lisense is the only license accepted universally throughout Missouri. I can now stop maintaining my 5 licenses and only carry one. I do have to take the prometric exam again.
I am sorry for being a tease.

Don't get me started on the expense and hassle of having to obtain and carry a license for every single jurisdiction I work in. It's absolutely ridiculous Kansas and Missouri don't have statewide licensing. I don't know about Missouri but in Kansas the state sets the standard for the master test and requires all jurisdictions to recognize it. I don't understand why that can't be the same for the business license? As a small contractor I have to cover a wide area to get enough business but I have to spend a small fortune to maintain all these damn licenses.

Congratulations! If you plan to do any work in Marshall, Missouri, think of me because 43 years ago I was born there! :)
