Does anyone remember the Mational Board of Electrical Examiners(NBEE) from the late 80's early 90's? I read an article in EC&M and I got in touch with them and took a journeymans test in Dec 1990. For some reason they could never make a go of it.I have only met one other electrician that had a NBEE certification. What do you all think of national certification. Shousd the NFPA look at this?

I have never heard of this, I take it it would be some sort of National Electrical License?

It sounds great I have licenses in MA, CT & RI the company I work for wants me to get ME, NH & VT as well.

We can not even get reciprocity with many states I can not imaging all the states agreeing to a National license. Who would collect the fee's?

could use the fees to knock down a little of the 5 trillion dollar federal budget [Linked Image]

Old topic but I just found my old NBEE card # 200176 from 8/1/93, I Googled it and found this thread. I feel it was either a scam or a good idea that never matriculated. They had told us at the time they were working for a national certification and more reciprocity but as we can all see now that reciprocity has in fact gotten much worse. They should strip the name "National" from the NEC!
