Forms & Applications to apply for a License

Why become licensed?

Licensure Builds Consumer Confidence.  Disreputable contractors have stigmatized the building industry through highly publicized scams, fraudulent activities and shoddy workmanship that has cost consumers, contractors, vendors and suppliers millions of dollars. Be seen as a contractor people can trust.    

Consumer Confidence Is Good Business. People want to work with professionals they can trust. Your PBC license shows you have the experience and training necessary to do the job.

What's New...

Building industry groups have been meeting for several months in Boise to work out code adoption issues for 2013. On the table under discussion are the 2012 IBC, IRC, IECC and existing Building codes. To date, it appears that their recommendation is to adopt the 2012 IBC and Existing Building Code, and to look at possible amendments to the IRC and IECC to make them less onerous. Please see the attachments for a progress report and analysis.
