    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    The limited exam historically had a 17% passing rate.
    And this is the correct reason.

    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!

    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 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.
