Have you tried to get your own liscense
One license doesn't cover all states even if there are some that may reciprocate. You will need multiple licenses and in many states this person will have to be an on the clock employee or officer of the company.Looking for someone who can pull permits for us mainly on the east coast as we need them.
Your qualifying agent has to be an employee of your business. Don't get yourself in some trouble here Simon.Is it? I thought as long as someone can pull the permits, verify that the work is done properly, and walks with an inspector there's no issues.....
If every electrical contractor has to have their own master electrician in every state there couldn't possibly be enough master electricians for all the work that's being done...
I've heard other people say that before, but never found anything in writing about it.
It's pretty cut and dry in NC.Do you know where I can find out what the actual law is by state? I'm getting different answers from everyone I talk to and it's starting to be confusing......
http://www.ncbeec.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Frequent-Laws-and-Rules-Violations.pdf(b) A licensed contractor shall not allow a permit to be obtained or his license number to
appear upon a permit except for work which he or his employees perform, over which he
will provide general supervision until the completion of the work, for which he holds an
executed contract with the licensed general contractor or property owner and for which
he receives all contractual payments.
It's pretty cut and dry in NC.
Just to clarify, the people must be employees of the firm that holds the license. It is not sufficient to supervise workers of another company. People have been fined and reprimanded for doing so.
I'm pretty sure this is similar in most of the states along the coast.
Most of the work we do is not considered electrical work. Screwing in a bulb is not considered electrical work fortunately.......With or without a permit, how can you do work without a license?
It's not so much that the task is simple and repetitive it's that somewhere the buck has to stop if there is a problem.Most of the work we do is not considered electrical work. Screwing in a bulb is not considered electrical work fortunately.......
God knows.....the way these laws are made, there's probably some fine print somewhere that says you need a licensed electrician to hold your hand when you screw in a bulb......
Yeah, that's why unfortunately there are certain jobs we can't do.....It's not so much that the task is simple and repetitive it's that somewhere the buck has to stop if there is a problem.
You cannot contract for electrical work with a customer, in Florida without a contractors license.
PM me and I can give you the name of a person that is an expert on this subject.
She doesn't mind spending a little time sharing what she knows.
We have all that covered.An installation on a clients property, using equipment and interacting with an installed power, lighting, data or security system, opens that building up for violations, most are not intentional.
It's possible someone could fall,
Someone could damage property
The retrofit could not be correct.
A contractor will have insurance in place and should be able to spot a product that doesn't have a NArTL label or identify a potential problem.
The client isn't the expert, maybe not even the contractor but, someone has to be responsible.
