I've been reading through the forums for a little bit, and decided it was time to introduce myself.

My name is Jim and I am a licensed contractor near Atlanta, GA. We do primarily commercial work including civil works, antennas, and telecommunications, but we also do some residential.

Our company was founded in 1991 and I have been with JP since 2002. I started off as the a general laborer and worked my way up to holding a state license for Residential and light commercial GC. I look forward to learning from other's stories and experiences.

In Georgia, a person with the company has to be licensed for the company to be licensed. We pay for each of our personal licenses, plus a state license for the company and a local business license.

I want to get my residential basic license. I meet the experience and time requirements. I can figure out the financial stuff on my own. I need to know from a practical standpoint how to go about collecting the required signatures to get my license. I have worked on two residential projects that qualify me, but the contractors won't sign for me. What situation can I put myself in that would make the necessary party feel like signing for me to get my license?

I had the engineers and owners sign off on my projects. Some contractors feel signing off for an employee or sub is creating their newest competition. And I can't say I blame them.
