Hello,

So we have a Professional Engineer working for our Electrical Construction company located in Oregon. He is wanting to go out and get his Supervisor license (master electrician license in most states). And he is more than capable of passing the Oregon test. In order to do electrical business we need a supervisor (master electrician) and it’s always nice to have someone else on staff that has one just in case the current person leaves.
According to the Oregon rules you have to be a journeyman electrician for 4 years to apply for your supervisor test. So Oregon is off the table, however Arkansas and Utah both reciprocate to Oregon. Arkansas says that you can be a Professional Engineer and apply to test. So my question is this… if he takes the Master Electrician test in Arkansas and passes can he get it in Oregon then also? Even though the Oregon rules state that he has to be a journeyman electrician for 4 years?

Thanks!

I'm assuming a "master electrician" is one who doesn't wear tools? But can work the he!! out of a pencil?

"Have worked a minimum of six (6) months (1,000 hours) under the license in the reciprocal state;"

This is Oregon's requirement for accepting reciprocity, so it's not going to work unless he wants to move to one of those states for a while.
