What Happens after I apply — Next Steps
FOR THE APPLICANT (All License Types – Commercial, Residential, Mold and Home Improvement)
Step 1 Notification Sent to Applicant
After the application has been processed by staff, an email will be sent from LSLBC’s email, [email protected], to the Applicant’s email address with the subject line “New Application Notice.”
The New Application Notice will contain the applicant’s login and password to access the applicant’s LSLBC Contractor Portal with this Board. Through this portal, applicants can check their application status, provide responses to application issues, upload additional documents, pay fees, and conduct other functions once the license/registration is issued.
Step 2 Deficiency Notice Sent to Applicant – ACTION MAY BE REQUIRED OF THE APPLICANT
Applicant will be noticed by email if any issues are found with the application or if any additional documents are required. This email notification will be sent to the applicant’s email from [email protected] and it will include instructions on how to resolve these issues. During this process, LSLBC staff will continue to review and process the application.
Step 3 Continuation of the Application Process – ACTION MAY BE REQUIRED OF THE APPLICANT
Please NOTE that applicants can check their application status at any time using their LSLBC Contractor Portal.
Once the license or registration is issued, the applicant will be notified by email and the registration certificate can be printed through the portal. The original certificate will be mailed to the address on file.
FOR THE QUALIFYING PARTY (For Commercial, Residential, & Mold Applicants Only)
Step 1 – Notification sent to Qualifying Party (will give qualifiers access to their LSLBC Contractor Portal)
After the application has been processed by staff, an email will be sent from LSLBC email, [email protected], to each Qualifying Party’s email address provided on the application with the subject line “Qualifying Party Verification”.
The Qualifying Party Verification notice will contain the qualifying party’s login and password to access their individual LSLBC Contractor Portal with this board. This portal will be used to check their qualifying party status, complete their Qualifying Party Verification (see next step below), provide responses to qualifying party issues, and upload additional documents as needed as well as many other functions once the qualifying party has been approved to represent the applicant.
Step 2 – Qualifying Party Verification – ACTION REQUIRED FOR EACH QUALIFYING PARTY
Completion of the online Qualifying Party Verification is required of every qualifying party before the qualifying party process can begin. NOTE: Failure to do so can cause delays in the application process. This is required of every qualifying party, including previous qualifiers and current qualifiers.
Step 3 – Deficiency Notice sent to Qualifying Party – ACTION MAY BE REQUIRED BY THE QUALIFYING PARTY
After the online Qualifying Party Verification is completed, the Qualifying Party will be notified by email, from the same LSLBC email, of any issues that are found with their qualifying party application, qualifying party verification, or if any additional documents are required. The email notification will be sent to the qualifier’s email and it will include instructions on how to resolve these issues.
Step 4 – Qualifying Party Approval and Approval Notice sent – ACTION MAY BE REQUIRED FOR THE QUALIFYING PARTY
If no issues are found or once all issues are resolved, the qualifying party will then be approved as an eligible qualifying party to represent the applicant. If trade exams are required for the requested classifications OR if the qualifying party hasn’t previously taken the Louisiana Business and Law course, the qualifying party will receive an Examination Approval Notice by email. The qualifying party will then use their LSLBC Contractor Portal to schedule the trade exam(s) and/or complete the online Business and Law course.
Louisiana Business and Law – The Louisiana Business and Law is an online course that should take about 30-45 minutes to complete. It is not a pass or fail exam. The Louisiana Business and Law is required for those seeking reciprocity from another state or using NASCLA to receive credit for an exam.
Qualifiers who have previously tested – An examination approval notice will not be sent to the qualifier if the testing requirements have already been met and Louisiana Business and Law has already been completed by the qualifier.Loading
