Our Mission...

To protect the life, health and property of the public through examination of applicants, education of licensees and discipline of individuals to promote quality electrical contracting in accordance with NC General Statutes Chapter 87-Article 4.


Pursuant to G.S. 87-50, the Board may grant licenses of the same or equivalent classification to electrical contractors licensed by other states without written examination.  The Board has entered into formal reciprocal licensing agreements with contractor licensing boards of several states whereby electrical contractors licensed by these other state boards may obtain a North Carolina electrical contracting license without written examinations. 

Following is information about the reciprocal agreements currently available.  Click on the state name for detailed information about eligibility and application packets.  You will need to have Adobe Acrobatinstalled on your pc to view and print the packets.
