sounds like he's working with no license or he would have the seal of the license he's working under.

Re: What Is Seal For Electrical Permit?


In NJ, if your trade has a board of examiners, such as Plumbing, Electric, or HVAC-R, that grants licenses, you have a stamp like a corporate seal.
These stamps in the case of plumbing and its newly spawned HVACR license are in a person's name. An Electrical stamp, technically called a Business Permit allows you to transact business in some type of corporate form, be it a sole proprietorship, LLC, INC, etc...

A Plumbing license and HVAC license have a number and a person's name like Robert Jones #7789. It doesn't tell you what company he is signing for. An Electrical Stamp would say Jones Electric Company #11923. In the state of NJ to get a physical seal you have to be approved by the board with that company for electric which costs 75 bucks every 3 years. You can have a License and be in no business as the responsible party and it still costs 150 bucks every 3 years.

In NJ the electrical license goes back to 62 and is the eldest of state wide licensing which was new then. The genius plumbers in 68 made theirs and decided to just have a natural person name. Of course they modeled the 2014 HVAC license on that and now have people signing for a dozen companies

In NJ, from the NJ UCC blue book, a plumber, electrician, and now HVACR contractor have a limited ability to seal their own prints or drawings provided it is a class 3 structure or less restrictive and below a certain sq ft like 7200. So you could draw out a wiring diagram on a house on graph paper or your own letterhead.
