    What I do know is my company contributions as an electrical contractor are currently being paid over to the Construction SETA, and so far they've proved as useless and ineffective as ESETA when it comes to our industry.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Jaboel, one of my electricians registered as a master electrician in feb 2014. he filled out this form. He is qualified electrician and wrote his installation rules at the college some time ago. just papers 1 and 2. he has n5 only. The department of labour registered him as a master electrician. i know.

    any way here is what is actually required on the DOL website.
