Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation; Board for Contractors; exemption from licensure. Exempts from licensure any person who is performing work directly under the supervision of a licensed contractor and is (i) a student in good standing and enrolled in a public or private institution of higher education, (ii) a student enrolled in a career training or technical education program, or (iii) an apprentice. The bill expands a current exemption from licensure for work undertaken by a person providing construction, remodeling, repair, improvement, removal, or demolition on behalf of a properly licensed contractor by raising the value threshold from $2,500 or less to $5,000 or less per project and by adding a home improvement building contractor classification to the list of valid licenses the supervising contractor may hold.
