Hello,
The qualification process of a company is a formal process done through the DBPR. You want to be certain that the Qualifier is indeed licensed and insured.

HEllo,
I have a 2 year degree from a technical college as a drafstman, does that count as education ?

# Idalia S. 2021-12-14 15:06
Hi Ricardo Vazquez! Your two-year credits from accredited college-level courses fall under the experience/education requirements for the Residential Contractor License. One of the alternative experience requirements is one year of experience as a worker, one-year of experience as a foreman, and two years of credits from accredited college-level courses. I will attach a link below with more information to obtain that license.

I have no college credits, but have 20 plus years experience. Repair technician, Forman, Production Manager, Sales Rep. Last 15 years with same company. I also hold state of Illinois residential, commercial and industrial roofing license. Would this qualify me for Florida roofing license without college credits if all other criteria is met?
Reply
# Aengels G. 2022-08-03 12:00
Hello Vincent,

If you have no credits from accredited college-level courses, then you can qualify in the Four years of experience as a foreman or worker of which at least one year must have been as a foreman.

Lee county is not longer regulating licenses, if you would like to do this type of work we recommend you get a Residential or a General Contractor License.

I pulled an owner/builder permit back in the early 90's and built our 3/2/2 home with my father, would this count as part of the qualifying experience for the CRC License in Lee County FL

Thanks

# Sharilyn Baez 2022-12-12 10:17
Hello Paul, Lee County is no longer regulating licenses. You will need to obtain a state-level Residential License. To use the experience you state above, you can provide documentation of the owner/builder permit you used to build your home. You will need to satisfy more requirements to qualify for the Florida Residential Contractor License. You can access the information on the link below.
