The electrical board has been having a pissin contest with another part of the state gubment. And only bits and pieces of the electrical codes have been adopted through the cycles. I don't know why.
This is been discussed at length every update.
Also take notice if you live out of conn. And try to apply to take their test. You will need to jump through many hoops. They have really tightened down on guys taking their test. They will want proof of school hours and work experience. Reguardless of you're licensed in another state or not.
Just an FYI.
