First Wolfdog is right on the money!
So your experiecnce is going to be the determining factor. If you have related experiecne that is provable it may be considered. Examples that I have seen used are:
Maintenance Technicians who work with related equipment.
Electrician working on related equipment.
But of course you have to be able to prove the experience is directly related to the license you are applying for.
In Texas over the last 3 years the average indiviudal who applies for a Class B license has 3.2 years of verifiabel experience and 1 year of related education, and just over 30% of them pass the exams. For the Class A licenses the average applicant has 17.5 Years experience and over 4.5 years of related education and just over 63% of them pass. There is a direct connection between experience and being able to pass the exams.

No really a loop hole but, seeing as they don't contract directly with the public, more of a property managemet kind of thing. I think.
this thread talks about maintenance but i does not say that the apartments or property managers needs to have license for him to work on ac systems.
correct me if im wrong...
It doesn't really matter what I think.
I'm just another guy on the Internet.
It matters what the state thinks that counts.
I feel bad. Seems like I should be able to answer your questions, without hesitation. But, that's not what's happening. Sorry. Maybe someone else is more up to speed on this subject.
