On April 25, 2011, the Construction Contractors Board (CCB) quietly rolled out the new CCB Online Services for construction contractors. The new CCB Online Services replaces the current CCB myLicense utility beginning May 17, 2011. On that date current CCB myLicense users will be redirected to the new program if they try to log in to their CCB myLicense account.
“We quietly rolled out the new service to give staff the time to assess its operation and receive feedback in a manageable way,” say Gina Fox, spokesperson for the CCB.
CCB Online Services allows contractors the ability to change their address, phone number and email of record with the CCB online. It also gives them access to the CCB’s e-watch program—a monitoring program that contractors could use to watch the license status of subcontractors or their own license.
Contractors can also take continuing education offered by the CCB that qualifies as continuing education credit.
“Because of the expanded services and the services planned for the future, it was important the agency build a system capable of the growth.” says Fox.
The CCB is currently in the development stages to add other online services including:
- CCB license renewals;
- Locksmith renewals;
- Home Inspector certification and renewal;
- Lead-Based Paint Renovation Contractor licensing and renewal;
- Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Technology (EEAST) certification and renewal.
