Seems like the NJ HVAC License program is off & running.
We had the first newly licensed contractor at the permit counter Monday!!

As I understand the new 'rules' the HVAC Lic allows them to connect/reconnect CUs now, and do furnaces from scratch.

It is been pretty standard here that the HVAC contractor can run the liquidtite and conductors to the disconnect but the disconnect had to be set by the EC

Yes, from an existing feeder/disconnect to the CU. They supposedly can do heating (furnaces/boilers/air handlers) from the panel. That I am looking for further clarification.

Limited to 240 volts, single phase.

I think that when you open this up to a virtually unlimited length circuit that may involve several issues, that may be a stretch.
Do the HVAC contractors get additional electrical training and certification.

Greg:
All that I have the original proposed 'Rule' (30-40 pages) and 'comments' to the 'Rule' before adoption (60-70 pages)

Frankly, I have not had time to read much, I just skimmed thru. It will be a learning experience for a while, for all the AHJs here. I have nothing written in stone yet.

Quite a few of us are amazed that the ECs seem to not have put up to big a protest, as to touch a HVAC CU required a NJ Lic EC, to pull the permit and.....do the work.

As to 'who' actually did the work??

I have not heard of any required training/certifications for electrical.

Although, the HVAC Lic probably will require some CEUs at renewal time, so there is another 'job created' for those that do CEUs for $$$.
