The way it was around here when I sat for the Block Master's Exam you had to have a HS diploma or GED and 4 years apprentice under a Journeyman before you could sit for the Journeyman Exam and then hold a Journeyman's license for 3 years before taking the Masters. I was 35 when I passed the Block Master's Exam on my first attempt.

I came back to this message just to see what everyone else would say. Again i say with a very large grin on my face and a large cold one in my hand, that YES I passed the test and i give each and everyone of you out there with tha lic. a great big handshake and a pat on the back. You people are a very dedicated bunch of people who took the time out to learn how to be in a trade that sometimes came be very difficult. Some of the other trades call us names because they think that we don't want to get our hands dirty. Well I tell them that to be an electrical contractor, it takes brains, nerves of steel to work on live circuits, common sense in order to why something doesn't work, you have to be a detective when you go out on service calls in order to figure out what someone else did before you got there. Someone once told me that on the insurence list, we would rate right up there with airplane pilots. I asked, "Why?" They said that electricians as airplane pilots, we are very good with our trade. However if/when we get TOO COMFORTABLE, we then have a chance of causing a big problem. Someone might get hurt or a building might burn. That is why we ALWAYS have to be on our toes when we work. I will get off my soapbox now. Thank You!
