Have any of you planning to become General Contractors (If you aren't already)? Can you use your experience as an owner builder to meet your work history requirement for the license.

Zeek,

According to Florida Statutes 489.111 

 A person shall be eligible for licensure by examination if the person: 

(a)  Is 18 years of age;
(b)  Is of good moral character; and
(c)  Meets eligibility requirements according to one of the following criteria:

1.  Has received a baccalaureate degree from an accredited four-year college in the appropriate field of engineering, architecture, or building construction and has one year of proven experience in the category in which the person seeks to qualify. For the purpose of this part, a minimum of 2,000 person-hours shall be used in determining full-time equivalency.
2.  Has a total of at least four years of active experience as a worker who has learned the trade by serving an apprenticeship as a skilled worker who is able to command the rate of a mechanic in the particular trade or as a foreman who is in charge of a group of workers and usually is responsible to a superintendent or a contractor or his or her equivalent, provided, however, that at least one year of active experience shall be as a foreman.
3.  Has a combination of not less than one year of experience as a foreman and not less than three years of credits for any accredited college-level courses; has a combination of not less than one year of experience as a skilled worker, one year of experience as a foreman, and not less than two years of credits for any accredited college-level courses; or has a combination of not less than two years of experience as a skilled worker, one year of experience as a foreman, and not less than one year of credits for any accredited college-level courses. All junior college or community college-level courses shall be considered accredited college-level courses.

The Construction Industry Licensing board Verification of Experience pdf myflorida.com states at the top of the form: "Florida certified contractors may provide verification of experience for initial certification applicants:"

You can also go to this site for more information: floridaexam.com

In other words, if you are qualifying for the exam based on three years work experience and one year as a foreman or a combination of educational credits and work experience, you must have worked for a certified contractor. No free lunch here.

But all is not lost. Some counties have less stringent requirements for their competency card than the State does. So why not check out the requirements of the county that you want to work in? I am going to try and get a specialty contractors license in Leon County that will let me do remodels, carpentry, painting, etc.
