For all you Florida electricans: as of March 1st, Experior has changed the format of the local Master and Journeyman exam from a 6-hour 3 section test to a 4 hour 1 section test. The old exam was a total of 150 questions, and the new is only 100 questions long. The problem is that many counties are droping the licensing of registered contractors because of this new reduced format. This action is requiring persons wishing to work in these counties to get the State Ulimited Certified license. Many of the local building departments have explained to me that this is a future trend that will eventually eliminate the registered license all together. If you are planning on becoming a registered contractor in the county you live, I suggest you do it soon. Two counties in my area stopped licensing for registered contractors immediately on the 1st of March. The State Unlimted is a totaly different animal than the local Master and certain financial requirements must be met to even sit for the State Unlimited. Good Luck!!
