So just how do you get a South Carolina electrical license so you can practice the electrical trade in South Carolina?
For residential structures up to three stories, you will need a South Carolina electrical residential license. For commercial projects over $5,000, you will need a mechanical contractors license.
South Carolina does require a minimum of one year working at the supervision of a Master Electrician. If you have the required experience, the next step is to download the residential electrical license application. The application will be submitted along with an affidavit attesting to your experience that is signed by a licensed builder or contractor. Once the state approves your application, an Examination Eligibility Letter will be sent to you that grants you three tries at the residential builders exam in a one year period.
You can get the training you need to pass the work requirements as well as pass your exam at an IEC training center.
At the IEC training center, you will not only receive classroom instruction from world class instructors, you will also receive hands-on training in the field as an electrical apprentice. And unlike traditional higher education, where you graduate thousands of dollars in debt, with IEC, you get paid while you do your apprenticeship and graduate with no student loan debt.
The demand for qualified South Carolina electricians will continue to grow. Your career will begin as an apprentice, but from there you can advance all the way up to master electrican or owner of your own company. It all starts with training at IEC to get your South Carolina electrical license.
Currently, IEC does not have a chapter in the state of South Carolina, but we have one across the state line in Georgia. Contact the Georgia chapter at the contact info below, or use the form on this page to receive more information.
