Hey guys…have you heard about a new association
NACMEI.org … National Association of Certified Master Electrician Inspectors
Qualifications are very tough and and only a few will qualify.
The founder is a long time electrician… the only problem he ever had was he wired a house wrong and it burnt down… The state sued his company and revoked his license, they never could locate him due to him having over five different address’s over five years and never collected the fine, now the former electrician is suing the state to clear his record because it was a conspiracy and nobody died.
The membership requirements… past an on line quiz… some of the questions are really tough and the passing rate is below 30%.
An example of test questions. You plug a lamp into a light switch… T or F
*14.2 wire means there are 28 strands wire. T or F
- The black wiring means that the wire is burnt and needs additional evaluation by a qualified electrician. Tor F
*Pay 199.00 per year and promise to take an on line quiz every year
*Promise to complete 50 CE NACME approved CE every year.
The open chat board is also very interesting…
The founder claims any body that’s not certified by him and did not complete his on line quiz are blind, other professional orgs and members are scum bags.
Another interesting thing is everybody claims to be certified a NACEMI CE provider/ vender and there are hundreds of free ce provided… if you join the org and pay thousands of $s for the venders product.
The founder claims thousand of members… and the org has a 99% renewal rate, the problem is if you try to call them over 50% of them have a disconnected phone or claim they haven’t been a member for the past few years.
One interesting comparison to a HI org. The founders policy and success is related to…
There is no law stating that you need to disclose to the public that you never worked on or inspected electrical components.*
The current interesting bb topic is ethics… seems that some members cannot agree that is ethical to claim to be certified and fail to disclose that the member never worked on or had any training on or inspected electrical items…
Also like a HI org they have a member that failed in a non related business that decided he will be the spokesperson for all members and decide what is and what is not ethical.
