    For North Carolina

    How's it going guys? I'm wanting to sit and test for my license here in NC. I'll take a prep course beforehand of course, but I have a couple questions.

    I've read the info available on the NC board of examiners site, but I'm still unsure of the correct order of steps to take to sitting for the test. I understand that I'll need to verify my time worked here via the forms, but does that come after passing the test or is that required to be eligible to sit for the test?

    You have to be approved to take the test and the work documentation is part of the approval process, along with character references.

      You have to meet the time requirement as a prerequisite to sit for the test. See page 3 and then jump to pages 66 through 75 of THIS LINK, these applicable forms have to be completed before you will get the acceptance letter to take the exam.

        The link that Roger posted also has a good sample test.
        They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
        She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
        I can't help it if I'm lucky

          That's what I was thinking. I didn't want to schedule my prep course and still have to wait a few months to sit for it. Thanks guys!

                FWIW, last time I checked, NC was the only state that Florida had reciprocal licensing privileges with.

                  Probably because both states are prime hurricane targets!

                  Years ago, an engineer of my acquaintance mentioned that most states will accept a license from other states without (much of a) question. Exceptions were:

                  -- California, due to earthquakes
                  -- Florida, due to hurricacnes
                  -- New York, because they're ornery.

                    I always thought that NC had reciprocity with other states who had exams as advanced or as difficult as NC exams.

                    The limited exam historically had a 17% passing rate.

                      And this is the correct reason.

                        Has absolutely nothing to do with electrical licensing.

                        AFAIK, New York doesn't have a state EC license and if that's the case it doesn't hold water anyways.

                          NC may have reciprocal arrangements with many states. Florida limits it's reciprocy.

                            ...that was supposed to be hurricanes, not hurric-acnes.

                              Check reciprocity on website, ncbeec.org. I just saw list today; Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia. It mentions documents though, so you probably have to register somehow or other to work those states.
                              Yes, I'll be happy to do a first class job for less than anyone else and take a dollar a week for 10 years.
