The West Virginia State Fire Marshal’s Office recognizes reciprocity with several jurisdictions. Regardless of the jurisdiction, each applicant must possess the minimum WV requirements for licensure.  Reciprocity can only be granted if the individual tested under the current licensing entity and with proof of successfully passing an examination. Individuals who previously held a WV electrician’s license and allowed it to expire ARE NOT eligible for reciprocity.
