Oregon is a large, sparsely populated state. It's ranked 9th in area and 27th in population, with about 4 million people. Salem is the capital, but Portland is the largest city. Oregon has a wealth of agricultural offerings. Wineries are a growing business. The timber industry, however, has been declining precipitously. Oregon's climate is generally mild, influenced by winds off the Pacific Ocean. There are deserts in eastern Oregon, for example the Alford Desert, while the western slopes - where most of the state's population lives, can be quite rainy. In the winter, temperatures average in the high 40s, and summer temperatures average in the low 80s.
Oregon's Division of Consumer and Business Services issues eight types of electrical contractor licenses. While HVAC isn't really a subset of electrical work, the Division does include a license for limited maintenance specialty in HVAC/R. Applicants must have at least two years (4,000 hours) of experience in HVACR work. Licenses are valid for two years. Contractors also must register with the Constructor Contractors Board.
