If you prefer not to wait for a visit by a survey team, you may hire
a licensed electrician or electrical inspection agency to perform an electrical inspection for you
at your cost. Whatever requirements you have to meet to get
an electrician license in Pennsylvania can only help your career.
The first thing you are going to want to do is clarify the undertaking.
