In Georgia there are 2 classes of EC, restricted and non restricted. The resticted can't work on systems over 200 amps. I think when they came up with it, they meant residential and commercial/industrial, but they never thought you would commonly have houses with 400, 600, or even 1000 amp services. There are also 4 classes of low volt licenses, unrestricted, alarm only, fire systems only, and telecomm only. I currently have an unrescricted EC and I'm planning to get an unrestricted LV to have it all covered.

If I count in the various levels of EC in the state there are 12 including the elevator guy...elevator electrial is a different license than an elevator mechanical. Here's the link http://licenseinfo.oregon.gov/index.cfm?fuseaction=link_class&class_list=13833,13830,13831,1536,1551,1683,1537,1555,1556,1713,1677,1666,1665,13829,13828,1739,1674&class_name=Constr uction%20contractors
So if we count all of the licenses there are including the inspector it's 26 different electrical licenses in OR.
The J, S, and C licenses can cover almost any other license. But in order to get a C you have to have the signature of an S and have one on the payroll fulltime. Then there's another requirment that you have to have one S for each job. You can't have the S signed on to more than one active permit. So you can't hire a Journeyman to work on his own. Now I'm wondering how I could run a service truck here.

e57, Mass has: A, B, C, D, & Apprentice. (A) is Master, (B) is Journeyman, & (C & D) have to do with system installations. (Fire alarm & the like). A Masters license allows you to run a electrical contracting business, but if you do not keep your Journeyman license you can not work with the tools. Nice way for the State to get more $$$$ from us. The licenses are good for 3 years.
One question, Why would you want to return here after 16 years?

Here in Maryland in order to pull permits you need a masters license in the county you need the permit in. You can take each counties test or take the state test. When you have a Maryland State license, you can just apply for each county. Thats all the state license does , it allows you to pick up the counties without testing again and again. Some counties (2) are starting to require a journeyman's license or a masters to work in their county. So as for totals: 2 State Masters License's ( limited and Unlimited) 23 county Master License 2 county Journeyman's license 1 Inspectors license

Licensed Electrical Contractor (Needs a Business Permit to 'work' & pull permits) (Can do ALL electrical; LV, Alarm, etc)
Journeyman Lic. (Connot pull permits)
Alarm (Burg & Fire) Exemption Card (Telco/Data)
I'll get the book out Wed & check the above.
We probably have a "License Board" for every conceivable trade/profession.
AHJ's are ICS; HHS, Sub-Code and Construction Official Elec; Plumb; Fire; Building; some areas have Mechanical, some don't. Elevator is State jurisdiction. Property owned by the State, Highway Authority, etc, is under State jurisdictions, permitted and inspected by State people.
If you can complicate things, the people in Trenton sure know how.

Al, Why would I want to return after 16 years... I don't, my Mom does.....
Grew up in E.Somerville/E.Cambridge, got a Mom who has been bugging me for the last 15 years to come back, whos getting up in age. Don't think I will though... But nice to know I could be starting over if I did. I don't think there is much cross-over state to state, as far as requirements and documentation. I learned the hard way on a short move to Washington some time back.
