   (a)   Experience. Any applicant for an electrical contractor's license must have experience in the installation, alteration and repair of wiring and appliances for electrical light, heat and power in or on buildings as set forth in New York City Administrative Code §27-3010. In evaluating this experience, credit may be given for the educational experience of applicants who have attended courses in a recognized vocational, industrial or trade school in electrical wiring, installation and design, or applied electricity.
   (b)   Description of course credit in recognized vocational, industrial or trade schools in electrical wiring, installation and design, or applied electricity.
      (1)   A recognized vocational, industrial or trade school in electrical wiring, installation and design, or applied electricity, is one offering a comprehensive curriculum of classes and practical laboratories taught in a logical progression to complete a specific course of study in electricity, as set forth in the description of the instructional program in residential, industrial and commercial electricity contained in the New York State Education Department guidelines for trade and industrial education, or the equivalent as determined by the Commissioner of Buildings upon the recommendation of the New York City Electrical License Board.
      (2)   A curriculum year of credit shall be no less than 200 classroom hours comprised of 20 percent lecture hours and 80 percent practical laboratory hours, or the equivalent as determined by the Commissioner of Buildings upon the recommendation of the New York City Electrical License Board.
   (a)   Applicability. Pursuant to New York City Administrative Code §27-3010, any applicant for a master or special electrician's license shall have had, immediately preceding his or her application, at least seven and one-half (71/2) years of experience in the installation, alteration and repair of wiring and appliances for electric light, heat and power in or on buildings. In evaluating this experience, the Department recognizes that periods of unemployment may make continuous employment for the seven and one-half (71/2) years preceding his or her application impossible. Thus, in evaluating whether a master or special electrician's license applicant has sufficient work experience, the Department may exclude periods of unemployment when considering whether work experience immediately preceded the application date, as set forth in this rule.
   (b)   In accordance with the above, the Commissioner may grant a master or special electrician's license application where the applicant's work experience has occurred within the ten years immediately preceding the application date, if: (i) the applicant has had at least seven and one-half years of such experience, and during such time, a minimum of seventy-five hundred (7500) hours or the equivalent experience in the legal installation, alteration and repair of wiring and appliances for electric light, heat and power in or on buildings in such ten years immediately preceding the application date; and (ii) during the two calendar years immediately preceding the application date, the applicant has been employed in the legal installation, alteration and repair of wiring and appliances for electric light, heat and power in or on buildings for at least a total of twelve months.
   (c)   Subdivision (b) shall not apply to electrician's license applicants whose work experience includes electrical work that was not supervised by a licensed electrician, or that was otherwise illegal.
   (d)   Nothing in this rule shall affect how credit for the seven and one-half (71/2) years of work experience is computed pursuant to New York City Administrative Code §27-3010(a)-(e).
