Your question probably misses the point. Unless you already have a means to emigrate to the US (you're a citizen, you're Cuban, you're married to an American, etc.), any answer is moot since being an electrician, even a qualified one, will not be enough to give you permission to live and work in the US.

But to answer your question, it's certified on a state level -- so there are more than 50 different answers to your question.
