VMO Electrical is so named for Vladimir's full Spanish name, Vladimir Munoz Ortega. He is from Santiago, Chile, and there (as well as several years in Barcelona) he gained practical experience in all aspects of the construction/ general contracting trade. But this was only as an addition to his specialty trade as an electrician, a talent and interest begun and cultivated under the tutelage of his father while he was a schoolboy aged only seven.
After already working professionally approximately 20 years in electricity, Vladimir went to University in Santiago, INACAP, where he formalized his knowledge base and studied the specialty of Industrial Electrics/ Installations. More rigorous than in the States where a mere 2 year Associate degree is granted to those desiring the Electrician title, Vladimir's degree reflects almost four years of in-depth study, advanced mathematics and full project simulations before graduation. Then just after graduation, in September 2017, Vladimir successfully passed the rigorous standardized test to be granted a Class B licensure in Chile... that which, with his course of study, is one level beneath only Electrical Engineer and actually enabled him to complete Inspections in Spain and Chile as well. Vladimir has an interest in LED and other efficient energy systems, and has pursued independent studies of Solar Electricity, the latter which he may pursue further in Pittsburgh while working professionally.
Vladimir is a member of and registered with NFCPA (Natl. Fire Code Protection Agency) and the ICC (International Code Council) and is a Registered Electrician with the state of Pennsylvania: PA-6808196. VMO Electrical is Fully Insured through Grange Commercial/ Trade Professional Insurance.
INACAP certifies that Mr. Vladimir Alfonso Munoz Ortega has graduated from the Industrial Electrical Study Program with a focus in Electrical Installations, leading to the Technical Title of Higher Level in Electricity Industrial
Lisa Miles is Vladimir's wife and partner at VMO, working the administrative end of the business. She is a long-time resident of the Perry Hilltop community, where they make their home and where Vladimir feels an integral part of the broader North Side neighborhood.
Vladimir has received his green card; he is proudly a Permanent Resident of the United States.
