Other than a light directly over the shower in a few areas I have never heard of bath lights needing a GFI. Whats his code reference?

BTW, what make panel is this, most breakers today will fit in older ones.
Wall sconces accessible from the bath and shower. I don't know if there is a specific code rule (it's Canada) but I don't have an issue with his decision. It's a complicated bathroom.

Sylvania bolt-in.

Installed the blank front GFCI and it was holding when I left. Like I said before, it can take hours to trip on the lighting alone. Hopefully this solves the problem. Thank you for your advice :) .

Hope it works out.

If it makes you laugh I heard over at what I believe was Mike holt of some guy drying his dog collars on a bathroom vanity light where the collar would slip down and trip the AFCI:laughing: Just thought of that now, still get a kick out of it.
