Contractor Bond, Insurance & State Registrations

Contractor Bond and Insurance

Trade-specific licenses, such as those for electricians, plumbers, or HVAC technicians, require specific knowledge and experience. Obtaining a trade-specific license generally means that trades people have completed a minimum number of hours of work experience as apprentices in their trade, that they have passed a standardized written test based on their trade, and often that they will complete continuing education courses in order to renew their licenses.
