Residential South Carolina Electrical License

The Residential South Carolina Electrical License course covers everything you’ll need to pass the exam.

The South Carolina Electrical License is a specialty license, issued to an individual, not a business entity, for anyone engaging in residential electrical work over $200, on residential buildings that are sixteen units or less, and do not exceed 3 stories.This license limits the individual to $5,000 per residential project, unless a surety bond of at least $10,000 is obtained from the Commission. Once bonded, there is no dollar limit put on the residential specialty contractor for work performed.

This class prepares you to take the SC Residental Electrical license, however, if you’d like to get an electrical contractor license valid in all states, we recommend the NASCLA Accredited Residential Electrical license. Our NASCLA Electrical exam prep class will prepare you for that exam, as well as the required Business and Law exam.
