 Brief desciption:

 All jobs in WV require the WV State License.  If you were organized in or tested in you CAN NOT get a temporary license issued at the Fire Marshal's Office, you MUST schedule yourself to take the test.  These testing dates fill up 2 months in advance. 

If you completed an apprenticeship and can show proof with your certificate of completion or a letter from your Hall stating that it was a Nationally certified training program and the date of completion of your apprenticeship, then you CAN be issued a Temporary license at the Fire Marshal's Office.

 

Temporary License Requirements 

Temporary Apprentice License requires the applicant to provide proof of either current enrollment or completion of either a US Dept. of Labor approved formal apprenticeship program or an approved West Virginia electrical vocational program of no less than 1080 hrs. Such proof must be either a certificate of completion of one of these programs or a letter of verification that indicates that the applicant is currently enrolled in one of the programs.

Temporary Journeyman License requires the applicant to provide proof of completion of either a US Dept. of Labor approved formal apprenticeship program or completion of an approved West Virginia electrical vocational program of no less than 1080 hrs and at least 4 years work experience in the electrical field.
