    Are you saying that the consulting company is looking to employ their own electrical inspector?

    As was asked, where? NYC or elsewhere in the State?

    Yes, in NYC. They want to see that during the construction phase that installations does not go against the NEC code.

    I would think the consulting company would either train you or tell you how to get certified or licensed.
    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

    You wouldn't need to be licensed to do that, just someone that knows the Code. There are classes.

    Now, if they expect you to inspect and sign off on a job then you would need to have the certification BUT I don't think it would be legal because of conflict of interest.

    NYC has their own inspectors so becoming a NYC inspector isn't going to happen.

    ETA: Some information here- https://www.electricianschooledu.org...cal-inspector/

    I have never seen anyone but a NYC dob inspector on a job here as a licensed electrician if I had some consultant telling me how to install my work there would be alot of issues on that job I assume most people here would feel the same

    Agreed.

    If you don't have AHJ status nobody is going to take you seriously. Only going to cause problems.
