State Electrical Licensing Requirements
Pennsylvania does not have state-wide licensing requirements for electrical craft professionals or contractors. Licensing requirements are a function of local county or municipal government.
Some of Pennsylvania’s municipalities have established local licensure or certification requirements for contractors or construction trades people. Typically, these requirements pertain to home improvement contractors, electrical contractors and plumbing contractors. Since Pennsylvania has no jurisdiction in this matter, the Department maintains no records concerning municipalities that have established licensure or certification requirements. This information can only be obtained by contacting the municipality where construction work will occur.
