A certified electrician has fulfilled all the necessary requirements to receive their individual license. These requirements include:
- Classroom training, with a passing score on the city or state examination.
- Several years of on-the-job training, under the careful supervision of a working certified electrician.
- The proper insurance coverage.
An electrical contractor license can be acquired by business entities. Contractors are needed for the big jobs, such as rewiring an entire property. They usually employ several certified electricians, and they're required to have a high level of insurance coverage.
