Licensure Requirements for Electrical, Plumbing & HVAC-R Trades in NJ

The above occupations require licensure in the State of NJ to work as contractors.  Students who attend training programs in these areas may work as an Apprentice.  Once they complete their apprenticeship they are called Journeyman.  Apprentices and journeymen are allowed to work under the supervision of a licensed Electrical, Plumbing or HVAC-R Contractor.  Journeymen have the opportunity to sit for their licenses after a period of five (5) years (10,000 hours) on the job experience and 576 hours of Related Technical Instruction (classroom coursework), and achieving a passing score on the appropriate NJ licensure exam.  Students completing the program and wishing to work without licensure may continue to do so indefinitely as Apprentices or Journeymen, as long as they are working under the direct supervision and authority of a licensed contractor specific to their trade.

The Adult &Continuing Education Program has on staff, Apprenticeship coordinator, for the County of Bergen. Additional and specific information pertaining to licensure requirements or apprenticeship training opportunities can be obtained by contacting the apprenticeship coordinator, Gerard Carroll at (201) 343-6000 ext.4603 or email, This email address is being protected from spambots.
