I share Curt's concerns about the ways around the certifications, and I agree that it should apply to all
people doing electrical work.
A C-10 (electrical) license holder will only be able to work on his/her own job without being certified, not work for somebody else.
In this area, a GC has to be doing 3 or more trade's jobs in order to pull an electrical permit.
Small TI jobs or residential, maybe they'll get away with it. A one man shop will not be able to tackle anything bigger without raising suspicion.
The simple fact is though, that agree or disagree, this is not simply going to "go away".
Is it just the nature of people to wait until the last second...like Christmas shopping? If people would just go take the silly 4 hour exam instead of spending countless hours trying to figure out how to circumvent the system....(Ahh, I should know better than that)...S
