Workshop set to help with licensing process
The Nevada State Contractors Board invites those interested in applying for a contractors license to attend a free workshop designed to assist them with the process. The session is scheduled from 9-11 a.m. Tuesday at the Henderson board office, 2310 Corporate Circle, Suite 200.
The Business Assistance Program was created to provide information to complete the contractors license application process quickly and accurately. Information in locating source documents for the application is provided, as well as a checklist of state and local agencies and other resources.
Additionally, those attending will have the opportunity to have their complete applications reviewed by staff before submitting them for approval.
The state of Nevada requires that all contractors, including plumbers, painters, landscapers, electricians and roofers, be licensed.
