Lost for words
Based on this fact. I can tell you they have already figured out the average time it will take a person to take the above test. Seems they may have figured it may take the average person who studied half the time to take the non-masters test.Another point of comparison: both Journeyman's and Master's tests are allotted 4 hours.
When I took the Journeyman's I completed it in less that 2 hours and got a 94.

I meant "residential inspector, commercial inspector, and plans review inspector"
I believe the three inspector licenses are separate.
WV Journeyman Electrician and Masters Electrician cover all sub licenses: Single Family Dwelling, HVAC, Fire/Burglar Alarm, and Sign.
My pensions and social security provide a comfortable income. I do electrical work as a "hobby". The guy I work with does commercial and high end residential electrical work (for the projects I work with him on). Things like gymnasiums for the rich, home standby generators, doctor's office new services....
I use the money to buy "toys" and pay state and federal income taxes.
My wife doesn't want me to work full time and who am I to argue?
PLCs would be interesting. I dabbled in programming them while in trade school in 2005/6. They are pretty simple computers. (I spent about 10 years as architect of a real-time operating system).
I'm also considering getting into part-time, private inspection.
I did resi for a summer. It was too hot, running miles of romex is a pain, and the bathroom vent fans seem to be built of resharpened razor blades. (I got a 3 stitch cut from one).
Sorry for the long winded response
[QUOTE=fmtjfw;1406659]I took the Master Electrician's test for WV on the 6th. I got the results yesterday.
...There were 10 calculation questions. Each question needed about 5 different code references...
On this test, do you have to write out each article as part of the answer?
So if there is 5 "references" and you list 4, the answer is wrong? MN used to be that way, but now is just multiple choice.
On the WV SkillsUSA tests I write for the Motors Controls contest, I usually give you 10 points for the correct multiple choice answer and 1 point for each correct code reference. If I expected 5 code references and you wrote 3 correct ones you got 3 points. No penalty for incorrect code references or incorrect multiple choice answers.
For example last year's test asked "what are correct wire colors for hot conductors?"
A: red, blue, green
B: yellow, black, blue
C: gray, orange, red
D: black, red, white
The correct answer was B
The code references expected were: 200.6 and 250.119 which was a little tricky
