Hubby is Electrical Engineer and thinks it might be very handy to have that knowledge/certification available to use, especially if we move.
Her Husband's Electrical Engineering degree might satisfy the requirements, back in the late 80's I was told that in Texas, a holder of an EE degree could take the test for either an electrician or electrical contractor, I forget the details...pcdreams said:around here you have to take a test that is put on by (I believe) the NEC (National electric code). If I recall correctly there is journeyman and master electrician position. You have to get the journeyman first. I don't think it's just passing a test though. I think you have to work for so long (sorry I don't know what amount of time) under someone else before you are elgible.
