It’s been 2 years since the applications have changed with the Florida DBPR for construction licensees. I still get folks that call and say, “I have a signer…” Whoa…Hold on a second. Let’s talk about how you gained your experience.
There are no signers, but that doesn’t mean that a person can just put whatever into the experience portion of the application. We always tells people (an even provide in writing a couple of times), this application is a legal document – it’s like you are swearing on a stack of bibles that everything in this application is true. If its not true, don’t put it in.
Some people are tempted to embellish his or her application with the hope that by checking off all the boxes they will not have a board review. My question is, “what if something happens and you experience gets called into question later?” Is it really worth it?
