Hire an electrician: What you need to know.
You need to know first off, that the electrician is licensed. Before anyone can work as an electricain they must attain a state license. That should filter out most unqualified people you run into out there. This really makes finding the right electrician easier than finding a plumber or carpenter. Remember, they must have a license.
There are two types of electrician’s license to consider. Those are Master Electrician and Journeyman Electrician.
Master Electrician: Has passed a standardized test and has at least two years of experience. As a Master Electrician you must know the National Electrical Code and any modifications that your state has made to it. M.E. is qualified to plan, design, install and maintain an electrical system for your project.
Journeyman Electrician: Hasn’t qualified for a master’s license, but he too is licensed by the state. (Some states require journeymen electricians to work with a master electrician.) By law, a Journeyman Electrician cannot design systems but he can install wiring and equipment.
