State Electrical Licensing Requirements
South Carolina regulates the licensing of electrical contractors, but there is no state-required licensing of journeyman electricians. Craft licensing is at the discretion of local units of municipal or county government. The Municipal Association of South Carolina (a non-government entity) offers information on local licensing and trade exams.
South Carolina offers reciprocity for contractor licenses only and with certain states and local governments, including the following:
- North Carolina
- Reading, Pennsylvania (city only)
Contact local authorities where work is to be performed for reciprocity details, if any.
