Each year, the Registrar investigates thousands of complaints from consumers against unlicensed entities attempting to perform contracting work. The complaints too often involve a consumer paying a large amount of money in exchange for little to no work or work not meeting minimum industry standards.
The Registrar of Contractors serves two core functions: licensing and the regulation of the licensing of contractors. For licensing, the ROC ensures contractors possess the experience, training and knowledge required in order to qualify for a license and then issues the appropriate credentials.
AZCCD is a two-day event where hundreds of high school students are able to get a hands-on understanding of what is available to them in a construction career. Students are able to speak with individuals from over 50 companies to understand and learn career paths and, likely most fun for them, build carpentry projects, run nails into roofing, and use large construction equipment.
AZ ROC maintains a list of approximately 10 individuals representing the Most Wanted Unlicensed Entities operating within Arizona. These individuals are typically known to perform poor work or abandon projects, have active warrants for their arrest or are believed to have committed egregious acts against consumers. Help protect Arizonans; contact local law enforcement, if you’ve seen these individuals.
