Division of Occupational & Professional Licensing

Cecil County

The State Board of Master Electricians issues only one license, Master Electrician. In Maryland the actual performance license to perform electrical work is issued by each of the local jurisdictions. Many of the local jurisdictions issue additional categories of electrical licenses. All of these licenses are LESSER than a Master Electrician. For example some jurisdictions may issue a “general electrician”, “limited electrician”, or “low voltage” license as examples. If an individual was interested in obtaining a lesser license than a master electricians license, then it would be necessary to contact the local jurisdiction where you would anticipate working and determine if they offer a lesser license and the qualifications. Not all jurisdictions offer a lesser license. In those jurisdictions that do not, an individual would need a master electricians license to perform any electrical work.

“I have to say, Jeff, throughout my entire apprenticeship and journeyman education, I have never been taught the Code like JCR teaches it. It was eye opening. Your methods should be standard throughout the electrical community. If I had been taught the Code like that from the beginning, I would have understood its purpose a great deal more.”

J. Mitchel

“You are a Master Teacher. I learned how your materials really work. With your test I scored 86% and on the State test I scored 86%. Your Electrical Code Workshop material is like a short NEC book, and your 500 Sample Examination Question are a special value. They really work!”

“You can count me as another satisfied customer. I took your class in Raleigh back in April and took and passed my exam yesterday. Your class and practice tests you sold were invaluable. When you and your wife said my score would be within 3 points of the practice tests I was a little skeptical. Now I am a true believer.

My average score on your tests was 84, and I scored an 84 on my final exam. I honestly never thought I would be able to pass my exam the first time taking it, and I don’t think I would have had it not been for your class and study guide. Thank you Thank you Thank you!”
