This subclassification also includes, but is not limited to, installing, altering, and repairing, panels, controls, conductors, conduits, cables, devices, plates, electric ceilings, control wiring; and electric heating, lighting fixtures, lamps, general outside lighting, underground and overhead feeder distribution systems for services, and related components or work necessary to provide a complete electrical system and installing window or through-the-wall air conditioning units not to exceed three HP or three tons where no piping is necessary.
South Carolina applicants taking the Commercial Electrician exam have a choice of trade exams. They can elect to take either the NASCLA Accredited Trade Examination for Electrical Contractors which is accepted by multiple state agencies or the South Carolina Commercial Electrician state-specific exam. There are differences in these exams, including exam content and references allowed into the exam, testing policies, and states accepting exam transcripts via reciprocity.
