Class Code 8601

Architect Or Engineer - Sales

Class code 8601 is used for employees that work in or for an architectural or engineering firm, including salespeople and drivers. This classification includes (but is not limited to) mechanical, civil, chemical, marine, industrial, electrical, mining, and metallurgical engineering firms. Also included would be employees that conduct energy audits while working for energy conservation firms. Depending on the employee, duties may include site inspections, research, consultations with clients, and the compiling of information for recommendations. In addition, most employees within this classification will engage in work related to either written or electronic media, such as maps, charts, plans or specs.

Mechanical engineers working for vehicle manufacturers, chemical engineers employed by chemical manufacturers, and electrical engineers that are employees of a power and light company would not meet the qualifications of this class code and would be excluded. Basically, any engineer or architect, licensed or otherwise, employed by a company whose primary business is not architecture or engineering would need to be separately classified.
