In Texas, just for example, the state code requires anybody doing electrical work be licensed, anybody doing HVAC work to be licensed, etc. Oh, except for those people who meet the requirements of an official exception. Like working for a railroad. Or like working for a utility company. In other words, those organizations large enough and with enough pull to have gotten themselves a free pass when those codes were written.

Wouldn't that rule exception be necessarily for people who are performing work in an apprenticeship program? Their HVAC work would be checked and supervised by a licensed electrician, however the work isn't being performed by a person who is licensed as they are still learning the trade.
