How do you show experience per job without a dollar amount attached? Thanks this is very helpful, they make it such a gray area!Several years ago the CSLB realized that they had to accept all experience, not just what was obtained as an employee. You are allowed to show experience as "self employed." They know you were most likely doing jobs over the $500 limit but would rather you be licensed than not.
The trick is to NOT show your experience "per job" but rather as a whole.
Im applying for B license. i sent them a 4 year college degree transcripts and contracts (at least 20-25 contracts) for all the work i completed within the last 4 years, this includes framing and several other trades along with receipts for some of the projects (others were missing or lost ). In addition i also sent another work experience certification form detailing work i did for him and signed by him. I also had clients sign and complete letters saying that work was performed by me, etc.Sorry. Since the cslb began it's new review process, very few applicants have been approved and sent to testing. Your experience has to be dang near air tight and backed up by verification documents. All the ducks must be in a row with their i's dotted and t's crossed.
Are you applying for the B or a C class?
yea i know. thanks for the uplifting comments. i will certainly update progress here. hopefully i can get a test date. cant wait to buy my materials.That's all great stuff! I can't guesstimate how the cslb will respond, but compared to others I've spoken with in the past few months, you're way ahead of the curve. They only need to give/award you with 2 yrs of experience, so I think the odds are good you'll get a test date.
