Question About Massachusetts CSL


I'm new here, so I apologize in advance if I'm posting this in the wrong forum or otherwise making some sort of newbie mistake.

I'm a GC in Pennsylvania specializing in kitchen and bath remodels. I have no employees and I generally don't use subs, so that means I do all my own plumbing and electric.

My wife wants us to move to Massachusetts to be closer to her family. I'm mostly OK with it, but I'm confused by some of the Mass licensing.

I know I'll have to get a CSL. That's fine. I can pull permits with a CSL and get inspections. That's fine, too.

My question is about plumbing and electrical. Can I continue to do all my own plumbing and electrical with a CSL, or do I need to bring on licensed electrical and plumbing subs to perform the work? If so, that's a deal breaker for me.

If anyone can shed some light on this, it would be very much appreciated.
