Do I Need to Submit an Experience Summary?

I got an e-mail today from a reader that was trying to find a solution to this concern: Do I have to submit an experience summary with my application if I held the very same category over five years back? The e-mail specified: Precious Mr. Cocciante:

Your Blog is a wonderful source and I more than happy I uncovered it. I have a question I wish you can address. Right here is the circumstance: Professional fails to renew certificate, certificate runs out, 5 years pass. Contractor has to now look for brand-new a.k.a. Original Certificate. Does Specialist need to complete and have Accreditation of Experience type signed? Per Bus. & Prof. Code 825( b) candidate “might calculate experience despite the ten-year constraint.” So, essentially, Contractor may use the exact job experience used to obtain original permit, and considered that Professional held permit, clearly he has satisfied the four-year minimum need … which leads me to the concern of does Service provider require to consist of an Accreditation of Job Experience kind?

I have actually reviewed clashing responses in an additional blog site. One time they stated the kind was not needed, another time they said it was. When I called the CSLB, a tech told me all Specialist requires to do is compose “See Certificate No. XXXX” on the Experience form; another technology had a different solution.

I’m wishing you have some insight for me. I very genuinely value your time. Possibly this topic may be a great one to blog around. I envision I’m not the only one attempting to figure this out. Plus, with the fires in Northern The golden state, feels like a lot of individuals are getting back into building after having allow their licenses run out.

Kind concerns, Jessica T. My reply: Hi Jessica,

Thank you for the kind words.

I can tell you as a previous cslb application professional, and also a service provider that deals with present application techs, that he would certainly not need to submit his experience with a new application.

On the initial web page of the application it will ask him to provide any kind of license he is/was connected with. The application technology will certainly look up that license number to verify that he held the same classification previously that is being requested now as well as will upload the application to the exams.

Having stated that, there is constantly a slim chance that they might ask for an experience synopsis and also confirming files (depending upon the category being looked for) for this kind of [] application.

~ End.
