Local Licensing Grandfather language has been finalized by the CILB

Posted on Feb 05 in Member Blog

The Grandfathering provision will read as follows:

(5) Applicants for licensure in any of the speciality licenses pursaunt to rule 61G4-15.100(1)(a) through (m), F.A.C., are exempt
from examination provided they meet the following requirements:
(a) As of June 30, 2023, holds a valid registered local license or competency card in any Florida Jurisdiction in one of the
speciality license types listed above;
(b) Has not had said license or competency card disciplined within the last five (5) years, and said license or competency card is
not currently pending discipline; and
(d) Has, for the requested license type, passed a written examination that the board finds to be substantially similar to the
examination required to be licensed as a certified speciality contractor as enumerated above. For the purposes of this subsection, a
written, proctored examination produced by the National Assessment Institute, Block and Associates, NAI/Block, Experior
Assessments, Professional Testing, Inc, or Assessment Systems, Inc., shall be considered to be substantially similar to the required
Rulemaking Authority
