Its a big place and each states requirements to do electrical work vary.

In my area I imagine they would accept your work hours (8000 Hrs required) but you might still have to do 600 hours of class room time and then take the test.

I would think it would be impossible to work under a TN visa being an electrician. How are you considering applying for work status?

there's lots of work here for canadian electricians. bartenders, waitresses, trashmen. lots of work. Or if you want to go for the big money you could become a hooker.
