Agenda Item VIII. State of Oregon Board memo Building Codes Division November 19, 2009 To: Electrical and Elevator Board From: Grant Zadow Assistant Chief Electrical Inspector Subject: Lester Alsup application for a Limited Journeyman Manufacturing Plant Electrician license Action requested: Review license application and give a recommendation to the division. Background: On August 27, 2008, the division received an application for a Limited Journeyman Manufacturing Plant Electrical license (PJ) from Lester R. Alsup. Mr. Alsup’s application included documentation of military service, but the division was unable to consider his military training and experience because it was not documented and verified as required by OAR 918- 030-0050. Without the military training and experience, the division was only able to recognize 11,500 hours of the required 16,000 hours. On August 20, 2009, Mr. Alsup submitted additional information related to his military training and experience. The division was still unable to consider Mr. Alsup’s military training and experience because he did not submit work experience documented with work categories required by OAR 918-282-0190(2)(a), or verified by an employer, supervisor or co-worker actively involved in the work as required by OAR 918-030-0040, and the training was not documented in a manner that the division could determine that the schooling meets the requirements of OAR 918-282-0190(2)(d). Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR) 918-030-0050 states that experience and training gained in the military is evaluated on a case-by-case basis to ensure it is equivalent to the established criteria for a license. The division is requesting that the board review Mr. Alsup’s application file and recommend to the division whether his work experience is adequate to sit for the PJ examination. The division is delaying action on the application pending the board’s recommendation. Options: Review application and recommend that the division approve Mr. Alsup’s application to sit for the examination. Review application and recommend that the division deny Mr. Alsup’s application to sit for the examination.
