Part of my training as a General Supervising Electrician is knowing and following the Oregon Administrative rules, OARs and the ORSs
The "Oregon administrative rules" are what we follow. Read them .We do not make are own rules. The Oregon administrative rules are available at building codes on line as I listed.
Check out ORS 479.620 page 18http://www.cbs.state.or.us/external/bcd/rules_statutes/compilations/2007_ors/479.pdf
479.620 Certain electrical license required;
Electrical installations by unlicensed
Persons prohibited. Subject to ORS
479.540, a person may not:
(1) Without an electrical contractor license,
Engage in the business of making
Electrical installations, advertise as or otherwise
Purport to be licensed to make electrical
Installations or purport to be acting as
A business that makes electrical installations.
Re: license application
One would not even look at a license application until they had verifiable prerequisites.
The Master Electrician was what you had listed on your resume description under previous work. As well as advertising to do electrical work.
As far as training, that is what apprenticeship is for. Two years as an apprentice for a Electrician, Limited Journeyman, Stage (ST) as of 9/01/09http://licenseinfo.oregon.gov/index.cfm?fuseaction=license_seng&link_item_id=1663
Licensee is limited to stage or theater electrical production tasks only not including building or structure wiring, and must be employed by an electrical contractor or theatrical producer.ndex.cfm?fuseaction=license_seng&link_item_id=1663
Building codes now has an enforcement team looking for illegal work,non licensed electricians doing work and working with out a permits
Here is the current penalty matrix .http://www.cbs.state.or.us/external/bcd/programs/enforcement/penalty_matrix.pdf
Here are some examples of penalties given http://www.cbs.state.or.us/bcd/boards/pdfs/electelv/00/122100a.pdfhttp://www.bcd.oregon.gov/boards/electelv/board_pack/09/20090326/EE_032609_IIIb1.http://www.cbs.state.or.us/bcd/final_orders/2008-0258.pdf
Other than plugging in something, or changing a light bulb, A non licensed person would call a Licensed Electrical contractor to do there electrical work.
Doing Electrical work in the State of Oregon with out a license is not legal.
As I said before contact the Oregon Chief Electrical Inspector.
Or call and Inquire what you can legally do.
