C-10 is the califorina Contractors license by what I read on there site . Question is Can you do electrical work with that license or are you required to employ Licensed General electricans Class to do the work???
Electure is of course correct, but to clearify a tad...
C-10 allows you to CONTRACT electrical work, California certification allows you to PERFORM the work. Most of us out here have both a C-10 AND cetification, as most of us pull wire AND push pencils.
Some of the larger companies, however, split the work. The C-10 is held by a company officer/owner that is strictly a desk jocky, and all the guys in the field must only have certification to legally do the work contracted.
The C-10 allows you to contract and exempts you from requiring certification while performing work on YOUR jobs. Should you want to work for wages for another C-10 you would need State certification, or to subcontract from the other C-10
Notwithstanding subdivision (a), the qualifying person for a Class C-10 electrical contractor license issued by the Contractors State License Board need not also be certified pursuant to Section 3099 to perform electrical work for that licensed contractor or to supervise an uncertified person employed by that licensed contractor pursuant to Section 3099.4.
My point is if you carry a C-10 you can do work for your own company but cannot work for another Company with a C-10 You must take a Exam, So just how good is a C-10 ?? Another words you can do electrical work for the Company you own but not anyplace else without testing right.
