In Alabama, an Electrical Journeyman is licensed to install electrical wiring, apparatus, or equipment lighting, heating, or power or control systems as defined by the Board as Electrical Work. He or She shall work under a Master or State-Certified Electrical Contractor and shall be capable of doing work according to plans and specifications furnished to them in accordance with standard rules and regulations.
