Tennessee Electrical License

Want to Become a Licensed Electrician in the State of Tennessee? Read On to Learn How.

The electrical industry is growing faster than the national average, and in certain booming locations, the demand far outweights the supply of available qualified electricians. Tennessee certainly fits that description. The Middle Tennessee / Nashville area, especially, is one of the fastest growing regions in the entire country. But no matter what part of the state you are looking at, there is strong demand for those skilled in the handling of electrical systems.

So how do you go about getting a Tennessee electrical license so you can practice the electrical trade in Tennessee?

The state of Tennessee requires that you be issued a Limited Licensed Electrician (LLE) license to work on projects with a total cost for electrical work less than $25 thousand. Projects over $25 thousand in cost require a contractor’s license with a CE license classification. Both types of licenses require the passing of a difficult exam to test your knowledge of electrical work.
