So I came out of job corps as a pre-apprentice I have never registered as a apprentice or helper but I have been working for a solar company for two years. Should I have registered as an apprentice? Or do I even have to to become an licensed electrician?

If you are moving to Kentucky read there rules in the link provided in your other thread, also make sure you have your boss in California sign for the hours you've worked.

You DO NOT need an apprenticeship to become "certified" in California, however it does help.

To get your "General Electrician" certification you need a number of hours across different facets of the field (commercial, residential, lighting, trenching, etc.) An apprenticeship helps you avoid part of this.
