County Journeyman Programs to Sunset
Mecklenburg County will sunset its electrical, mechanical, and plumbing journeyman programs effective Dec. 31.
Through the years, changes in licensing regulations and journeyman programs across the state all but eliminated the need for Mecklenburg County's program. After careful consideration and consultation with other counties in North Carolina, Code Enforcement staff decided that there is no discernable benefit in continuing the journeyman program at the local level in Mecklenburg County.
The program was a success, with heavy participation, for decades, and Code Enforcement staff thank the professionals who participated in the program over the years.
Technical license information can be sought from the State of North Carolina. In the meantime, Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement continues to be happy to offer assistance for trade professionals in the form of our monthly trade consistency meetings and through our Residential Technical Assistance Center (RTAC) and Commercial Technical Assistance Center (CTAC).
