Default Pulling a LV Permit

I'm not sure if this is the correct posting location, however I need to pull a permit for a new job that I am bidding within the month.

Prior to getting my ULV license, this was preformed by someone else. Could someone tell me the process for pulling a permit and what is required from my side. Where should I go, what volume of work requires a permit? Thanks for your help. I'm new to preforming this myself.

I'm unfamiliar with the way they do things in Georgia. Steve Dale is probably the best person here to help you out.

I feel like an outsider. (NorthEast) Everyone here is in the south or left coast.
(I'll deal with it,best I can)

Typically LV- (here NE) Any NEW installation of wires goes thru the electrical dept.
Hence,An electrical permit is required. Even for Low volt.
(Revenue enhancement ya know)

I think it would be great in cities/counties actually enforced a LV license and permit - doesnt seem that way in Florida.

South Florida has happened upon this excellent revenue stream. I have been insisting for years that ANY company that upgrades hardware should pull a low voltage permit. Cisco, Juniper, Avaya, Nortel, IBM and all the other equipment manufacturers and distributors should be handing over records of all sales over $10k. I see too many companies trying to upgrade on the cheap.

I was referring to actually enforcing the law, seems like most cities or towns could care less who is pulling LV cable.

I have allot of competitors that pull cable without a license and it seems no one cares.

Yeah i feel the same way. Try calling places like Cartersville and they don't even have a fire marshalls office plus they don't call back. I'm in Cherokee but from what I hear cobb amd cherokee seem to be the strictest of the counties. Sammy check with the building dept for the county. It's priced per sq ft but steve will have a better answer seeing as he's on the board.

Info DBPR Sweeps Gainesville for Unlicensed Low Voltage Activity

Department of Business and Professional Regulation Sweeps Jacksonville for Unlicensed Low Voltage Electrical Contractors

March 4, 2010

JACKSONVILLE—Yesterday, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation completed an unlicensed low voltage electrical contractor sweep, resulting in 14 cease and desist notices and 19 cases opened for unlicensed activity.

“Our investigators use all their resources during sweeps to find and stop unlicensed activity,” said Interim Secretary Charlie Liem. “For this sweep, investigators searched the Internet and yellow pages for individuals advertising without a license and targeted those individuals during the operation.”

The Jacksonville sweep was part of DBPR’s quarterly statewide unlicensed activity operation. This quarter, department investigators focused on low voltage electrical contracting based on tips Interim Secretary Liem received during “On the Road 2 Better Business, Part 2.” A Limited Energy Systems Specialty Contractor’s license is required to do low voltage electrical work, such as the installation of home theater and surround sound systems, wired computer networks, closed circuit televisions, electric locks and central vacuums.

Hiring an unlicensed individual can threaten the financial and personal safety of consumers, as well as the livelihood of state-licensed professionals. Unlicensed individuals may not carry workers’ compensation or liability insurance, and consumers may end up paying for injuries on the job. Additionally, unlicensed individuals often underbid licensed professionals, which results in law-abiding professionals losing work to those who do not meet state licensure requirements.

Here are some tips to help consumers protect themselves against unlicensed activity:

• Always ask to see the State of Florida license.

• Note the license number and verify that the license is current. To check a license, call 850-487-1395 or visit MyFloridaLicense.com.

• Ask for references and check each one.

• Do not pay cash and be cautious of writing checks made payable to individuals, especially when dealing with a company.

• Get everything in writing, including a detailed description of the work to be completed, a completion date and the total cost.

Report suspected unlicensed activity at MyFloridaLicense.com or toll-free at 1-866-532-1440.

The department’s mission is to license efficiently and regulate fairly. The department licenses more than one million businesses and professionals ranging from real estate agents, veterinarians, and accountants to contractors and cosmetologists. For more information, please visit

MyFloridaLicense.com

I have insisted for years, any company, to upgrade the hardware should pull a low voltage license. Cisco, Juniper, AVAYA, Nortel, IBM, and all other equipment manufacturers and distributors should be transferred to sales of more than $ 10,000 for all records.

Default Re: Pulling a LV Permit

My boss has been calling DCP quite a bit about being able to pull a permit with his V9 license, being told that he can't.
He did finally speak with a "different guy" who said yes, he can pull a LV permit with his V9 Radio/TV Repair license.
He still prefers I pull the permit.
I get loaded out with 5 to 8 jobs a day, there is no way to pull permits and complete those jobs on the due date. I get many jobs installing service to the demarc with no jacks on the order. Then the customer decides they want jacks. How would that work
After Contact 13 exposed what happened in the Liberty neighborhood, KB Home announced they’d reimburse the homeowners on the street in our story.
Each would get back the $300 cash they had to come up with to get their cars from Custom Towing.
But KB didn’t tell us the same thing happened on street after street, in multiple neighborhoods within the Huntington development.
