Required Experience For General B License


I'm 24, reside in Nevada.I'm trying to get my GC license. I'm just worried about not having enough experience. I'm required to have four years of experience. I was a maintenance tech for 2 years. I was doing low voltage electrical, painting, drywall repair, lots of plumbing, (sweating copper, replacing toilets, faucets, water heaters, etc). After I got laid off, I worked for an plumbing company. I was doing new housing construction.(Running underground sewer, sweating copper, braising Copper, running gas pipe, running PEX waterline, service calls, etc) I was doing that for a year. Now I'm with my current construction company for a year now. I'm doing a little bit of everything here. (Plumbing, cabinets, low voltage electrical, pouring concrete slabs) is this enough work experience to send to the contracting board?

If Nevada is like Cali you'll need 4 years at a journeyman level. So in reality that's more like 7 years minimum.
