Contractors State License Board Speeds Up Home Improvement Registration Process with New Online Interactive Forms
SACRAMENTO – The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) has launched a series of interactive forms to simplify and speed up the registration process for Home Improvement Salespersons (HIS) applicants, and licensed contractors who employ HIS.
The biggest advantage to the new three new forms is that registrants and contractors are alerted if an error is made when entering information, or if any of the required fields are skipped. Also, forms cannot be completed if information is missing or in conflict with other CSLB records.
These new forms are:
|Form Name||Who Fills Out||Purpose|
|1.||HIS Interactive Application||HIS Applicant||Apply for HIS Registration|
|2.||HIS Interactive Employment
|Licensed Contractor||Connect HIS to License|
|3.||HIS Interactive Employment
Cessation Notification Form
|Licensed Contractor||Disconnect HIS from License|
Those seeking to become an HIS can use the interactive registration application. Licensed contractors can use the new employment notification form to alert CSLB when a HIS joins their staff or the employment cessation notification form when the HIS employment ends.
Users of the interactive forms should find them easy to navigate and complete. There also should be fewer rejected forms since entries are no longer hand-written, and mistakes are caught earlier in the process. Upon completion, the form must be saved and printed out, signed, and sent to CSLB.
There is a $75 fee to register as a HIS. There is no fee for licensed contractors to notify CSLB of HIS hiring or employment ending. Direct links to the forms, and further instructions, are available on the CSLB home page.
CSLB staff will monitor the response to the interactive forms by contractors and registered sales staff, and use that feedback to develop more forms for online completion.
These new forms are also CSLB’s first move toward an online system that should fill many licensing and registration needs.
