In order to become a licensed Contractor in the state of California you need to be OR have an RMO. RMO stands for "responsible managing officer." In order to act as one you will need to go to school, become trained, and then licensed. To bypass the testing and headache you can simply find an RMO... …HOWEVER, that process is not entirely easy as they must be pre-screened and qualified. There is one company I have found, RMO Agency ,which basically offers a pool of pre-qualified RMOs. Their service fees are monthly and they assist in every step with constant maintenance so if for some reason your RMO leaves... you have a replacement. Personally I didn't have time to take the testing, so I went with this solution. They even helped me get my business RMO ready for me. Anyhow, it's been a few years and I'm happy. Not many people know there are other solutions out there, ( Full Answer )

So you have a contractor in mind for you Home Improvement Projects, and now you want to verify if they are; in fact, "Licensed and Insured" Like their Business Card, Company Vehicle, or Advertisement states. Well, verifying a Contractor's License and Insurance Policy status isn't that hard, if you k…now what to do and where to look. Insurance When you're talking insurance, a good rule of thumb is, "The Contractor MUST be Insured!' Ask the contractor if the company is insured against claims covering workers' compensation, property damage, and personal liability in case of accidents. Usually, the Property Damage and Liability Insurance should be a MINIMUM of 1 MILLION DOLLARS. Ask to see a copy of the Certificate of Insurance, or ask for the name of the Contractor's insurance carrier and agency to verify that the contractor has this insurance. This is important for you as a homeowner. If a worker is injured working on your property and the contractor does not have the insurance, you are the one who will have to pick up the bill for an injured worker's injuries and rehabilitation, if necessary. Don't let your homeowner's insurance policy become the contractor's liability coverage! Licensing Contractor Licensing is a little trickier subject. It would be much easier to verify licensing information, if all States had the same requirements and all contractors were licensed by one insurer... but they don't, and they aren't, so it takes a couple extra steps to verify that your contractor is licensed. States like Michigan and Florida strictly enforce licensing and even have different types of specialty licenses based on what type of work the contractor does. Some States like these even have web sites you can visit and simply type in the contractors name to check for a current license. For instance, the State of Michigan is broken into 2 major areas for licensing. Other States like Indiana and New Hampshire, only require licensing in 1-3 areas,,, Like Plumbing and Electrical. All other requirements are regulated at the local level (city or county), with some area's not requiring licensing at all. If you live in an area like this, you will have to call your City or Counties business office and ask about licensing requirements for your project and area, and then ask them to verify the licensing status of your contractor. If the contractor is not required to be licensed, it doesn't mean he isn't licensed... or can't get licensed. It simply means it is not required for him to be licensed in that area. (Cars don't have to get at least 15 mpg, but it sure does make it better when they do!) Investigating a contractor's license may seem like a pain, but it will be more of a pain to try to get financial restitution form an unlicensed contractor who preformed a horrible job on your project. Once your State's requirements are verified, you can research the state contractor site to verify they are licensed and insured. Before any work is preformed, draft a contract stating what work will be performed and for how much money. Completing these 3 steps will assure you a more positive experience with your contractor on your next home improvement project! ( Full Answer )

No. As long as you bid jobs for under $500.00 for the total job, there is no need for a license. This also includes splitting up a bid to have each bill under $500.00. You are only allowed to work on 1 job, per customer, per year, with a maximum of $500.00 total from each client per year.
Yes you can-- you don't have to tell your clients about your past if it is not relevant to your business ownership.
You do not need a Contractor's License to build your own home because you are not a Contractor that builds homes for anyone else. You may need to get many different 'Permits' to start and complete the build of the house, but you do not need a Contractor's License, unless you plan on building other… things for other people for money/compensation. There are different 'permits' that are required for the different areas you may have a plan to build in. (i.e.) building within the city limits requires different permits than building out in a rural area would require. The city has different requirements than a rural area build does because different things are necessary to complete the build. You may have to put in a water well and septic system in a rural area build, but may connect to the city water supply and city sewer system if building in the city. Some cities/counties have electrical codes that must be followed and be inspected by the city/county inspector for correctness prior to allowing more work to continue on the home. You will have to check with the city/county building department, for the specific area you wish to build in to get the correct answers to your needs concerning the permits that will be required. You should not be required to get any Contractor's License though, unless you plan on starting a business of building things for people for money or some other sort of compensation. ( Full Answer )

If by 'electrical contractor' you mean an electrician, then probably not, although it depends on the professional/trade/union laws of your country.

Furthermore, an electronics engineer, while having higher academic qualifications than an electrician, is unlikely to have acquired the necessary training in the relevant wiring regulations and associated knowledge.
