This is for all you facility managers/engineers who are liscensed electricians. If you have a person who was hired as an apprentice electrician and a facility technician do you still give him all of his hours at the end of four years?
Does the industry standard of working under someone for 4 years and then getting all of your hours still count here?

Did this apprentice complete a formal training program, while employed for these 4 years?

Licensing rules and requirements are very different for each area.

As you say you are going to put four years in it is in your best interest to find out the exact rules from the agency in charge for your area.

Click this link and than choose your state you will find who to call.

The way we have to do it at our facility, is that the guys are registered apprentices and the only time their hours count are when they are working on a new installation.

Maintenance and instrumentation do not count. They also need double the number of hours, because they are not getting training in the other areas ie.(residential,commercial). Here the state does not require apprenticeship classes. IMO the classes are great and should be required.

I agree with that. I've been doing electrical work since 1990. But not until recently did I start going to school to improve upon this great trade. To make a long story short, in the past 18 months that I have been going to school, I have learned more about the actual trade than I ever thought I would. And not just the hands on aspect, but the actual understanding of how electric works and how it's created. That alone has made me 20 times the electrician I once was. Visiting ECN has also been remarkable toward advancing my career.
