    Why is it so difficult to get licensed in PA?
    Has anyone else had this problem or know of anything that might help speed up the process?
    We are a sign engineering firm and the last state we need licensing in is PA. We're excluding AK.
    Any help or advice would be nice.

    ...as far as I know, there IS no state licensing in PA.
    Anyone can make and install signs here.
    That's why there are so many hacks.
    (not talking about electric signs)
    :Big Laugh
    My business is registered with the state and I do have liability insurance, though.
    Love....Jill

    Hi Jill,

    I think they are trying to get a license for engineering... YJ Specializes in
    engineering signs, quite a few of my clients use YJ.

    -------

    You are required to have an electrical sign contractors license for electrical signs.
    I believe in PA, Cities, not the state have jurisdiction over that. When a sign is
    a certain height or is within the bounds or pulling a permit, the city may require
    engineering.
