A number of young lads have asked me about working as an electrician in the States and Australia. I was wondering just what the minimum qualifications might be and what regulatatory impediments might exist.


regards

As far as the U.S. is concerned, the requirements vary from state to state. There's a site with links to the various state regulatory bodies on ECN somewhere -- Perhaps one of the U.S. members could post it?

Visa/immigration issues will also be a consideration. As somebody who has jumped through all the INS hoops to get work authorization in the U.S., I can assure you that a plentiful supply of patience is definitely a requirement!

Hi there Lyle!.
Here's the link to the US Licensing requirements:

As far as Australia goes, individual states have thier own requirements as to the minimum standard for Licencing.
I'll see what I can dig up. [Linked Image]
