A Message from Executive Director George Whalen
Welcome to the web-site of the RI Contractors' Registration and Licensing Board. It is indeed an honor and privilege to be able to provide these services to the people of our great State.
Our mission is “to safeguard the consumers rights related to contracted improvements to residential property, while providing a fair and positive environment for the construction industry.”
In this endeavor, we will try to assist contractors and consumers try to settle any disputes that arise within our jurisdiction.
Announcement concerning Home Inspectors, Commercial Roofers, Well Drillers and Pump Installers
Legislation was passed to implement the licensing of home inspectors, commercial roofers, well drillers and pump installers instead of the registration requirement.
The Board has been working on obtaining a third party testing agency and recently reviewed the request for proposals received from the Division of Purchasing.
At the December 11, 2013 Board meeting the Board has selected PSI Services LLC to provide the testing services relevant to the new licenses which will be issued by the Board. Upon the signing of the agreement with this provider, examinations will be developed in each of these disciplines to accommodate the candidates who want to be licensed in these fields. Efforts will be made to expedite this process and to develop rules and regulations to provide for this licensing requirement.
We are looking forward to partnering with PSI to better serve the citizens of our state in raising the bar to meet the challenges of the industry.
