FLORIDA STATE LICENSES & OTHER CERTIFICATIONS
"If you should rear a duck in the heart of the Sahara, no doubt it would swim if you brought it to the Nile."  ~Mark Twain

State Certified Pool/Spa Service Contractor - License # CPC 044951

Anyone hired to perform repair, installation, or remodeling services for either a residential pool or a commercial pool must be licensed by the state.  Unlicensed activity is illegal, can cost pool/spa owners thousands of dollars in damages, and voids manufacturers warranties.  Contractors are regulated by the State of Florida through the Construction Industry Licensing Board (CILB), a division of the Florida Department of Professional and Business Regulation (DBPR).

    Certified
    Contractors can either be "certified contractors" or the simpler "registered contractors."  A certified contractor possesses a certificate of competency issued by the DBPR and is allowed to contract in any jurisdiction in the state. Certified contractors license numbers begin with the letter "C".  A registered contractor registers with the DBPR, they fulfill the competency requirements for the jurisdiction where they will be working, and they can only work in that jurisdiction. Registered contractors license numbers begin with the letter "R".

Anyone hired to work on a swimming pool or spa heater for either a residential pool or a commercial pool must be licensed by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services through its Division of Standards' Bureau of Liquefied Petroleum (LP) Gas Inspection.  The Bureau qualifies persons as competent to engage in LP gas business activities and licenses their companies to sell, install, service, and repair propane appliances and equipment.  The LP Gas Installer C (0408) license is required for any person, firm or corporation, involved in the installation, service, repair and sales of LP gas and/or natural gas appliances, equipment and piping. NOTE: It is NOT permissible for anyone to service or repair propane equipment with a contractors license through another state agency. Propane work in Florida can only be performed by a person or company who has a license issued by the Bureau of LP Gas Inspections. No other license is valid for this type work.
