Interested in Becoming a CSLB Industry Expert?

The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) is looking for licensees in specific classifications for its Industry Expert (IE) program. IEs provide a valuable service to CSLB by independently reviewing projects and submitting recommendations that help maintain the integrity of California's construction industry. More than 500 contractors now participate in the IE program around the state.

CSLB currently has a sufficient number of "B" General Building contractors serving in the IE program, but needs the following classifications to work with CSLB's various Investigative Centers:

IEs most often assist the Enforcement division during the investigation of consumer complaints by providing their professional, unbiased opinion on the quality of work rendered on a particular project, whether it meets industry standards, has been performed according to specifications, and lives up to contract terms and agreements. IEs also testify in criminal hearings, arbitration proceedings, and administrative hearings, and also submit written testimony for reports.

This 20-year-old program has been an effective peer review tool and an opportunity for CSLB-industry collaboration. IEs also are compensated for their time, depending on the service rendered.

To participate, you must have held a current contractor license for at least five years, free of licensing or disciplinary actions, and must be knowledgeable about modern, accepted trade practices in your field of expertise.

Contact CSLB's Enforcement division at 916.255.4027 or click here for more information. You can email your qualifications and preferred work location to: IndustryExpert@cslb.ca.gov.
