Contractors Sought as CSLB Industry Experts in Sacramento, Fresno Areas


CSLB is looking for veteran contractors in the central part of the state to join its Industry Expert Program (IEP), a group of trade professionals who assist CSLB in investigating consumer complaints. In the Fresno area, C-57 Well Drilling contractors are needed as Industry Experts (IEs). Contractors who hold C-8 Concrete, C-12 Earthwork and Paving, and C-23 Ornamental Metal licenses from the Sacramento region are also encouraged to apply.

Industry experts (IEs) serve as independent consultants to CSLB, and are compensated for their time.

IEs have a unique opportunity to help ensure that construction safety and industry standards are being met. An IE inspects assigned projects, and prepares unbiased, professional reports to help protect the public from unscrupulous or incompetent licensed and unlicensed contractors. An IE also may be called upon to testify in arbitration and/or administrative hearings.

IEs must be licensed and in good standing with five years of experience as the license qualifier, and have no legal actions against them within the past seven years to qualify for the program.

To participate as an IE or for more information, review CSLB's Industry Expert publication, or send an email. An application to join the IE program can be printed, filled out and mailed to CSLB's Sacramento headquarters.
