Thank you for the info.mdshunk said:That varies state by state. In some states without statewide licensing, that even varies by town or county. What a mess. The best thing you can do is call your local building department. If memory serves, FL does have statewide electrician licensing requirements. Many states will allow a visiting tradesman that is licensed in another state to post a bond to do one certain project. You might look into this possibility as well if your proposed electrician is licensed in another jurisdiction.
