Who can become a Designated Electrical Equipment Inspector?

As a guide, designated electrical equipment inspectors should have
an electrical/electronics background based on:

    * An associates degree as an electronics or electrical technician
    * A B.S. or higher degree in electrical, electronics or computer
      engineering, engineering physics or a related field
    * Being a licensed electrician, and/or
    * Considerable experience working as an electronics technician or
      engineer or on electronic/electrical equipment.

An electrical background is required prior to taking the inspection
course in order to qualify the person as a competent inspector.  The
course and the inspection task require this background and the course
assumes having this knowledge.
