Licensing and Certification Examination Process

Examinations
Locations and schedules
 
Examinations
  1. If an examination is required for your license or certification, indicate your choice of a testing location on your application.

  2. When your application is approved, the Building Codes Division sends you a "Letter of Authorization" and sends your examination materials to the testing location you selected.

  3. The Letter of Authorization includes the telephone contact number for you to call to schedule your examination. It is your responsibility to schedule the examination date and time with the testing location. The examination must be taken within 60 days of the date of the Letter of Authorization.

  4. You must provide both your Letter of Authorization and photo identification at the testing location. Examinations are not given without these two documents. You must also provide your own pencil(s) and calculators. If you bring a calculator, it must be a silent, non-programmable, non-printing calculator. Scratch paper is provided in your test packet.

  5. Do not contact the testing location for examination results. The examination location forwards the exam to the Building Codes Division for grading. After grading, the division sends you the results by mail. Please allow two weeks to receive your results. Examination results are not given over the telephone.

    Cheating on an examination includes:
    Providing untrue information regarding qualifications to take an examination.
    Using unauthorized notes, devices or information during an examination.
    Copying from another person.
    Allowing another person to copy from your examination.
    Providing answers or assistance to another person.
    Taking or copying examination questions or answers from the testing location.

  6. Once you pass all required examinations, and pay all required fees, the division will mail your license to you.
