Getting a Contractor’s License:
Service Members and Veterans
PHOENIX, Ariz., (May 15, 2020) – The skills, experience, education, training and work ethic developed while serving make veterans and service members desirable candidates for many opportunities, and the Arizona Registrar of Contractors (AZ ROC) is committed to honoring those experiences when these members apply for a contractor’s license. Getting and maintaining an Arizona contractor's license has never been easier and there are additional special provisions in place for service members and veterans.
In June 2018, AZ ROC created a new web page (Service Members and Veterans), with detailed information outlining special provisions for service members and veterans; related to exams, experience, legal proceedings, and license expiration and renewals as required by statute (A.R.S. §32-4301, A.R.S. §32-4302, A.R.S. §32-4303, and A.R.S. §41-1071).
Recognizing that some individuals may prefer verbal communication and to talk to a peer, the Agency also designated two staff members who have served in the military and volunteered to serve as veteran representatives at the Agency. These individuals have been trained on the statutes benefiting the men and women of our armed forces, past and present, and are available to answer any questions regarding how these statutes may impact an applicant or current licensee.
These representatives can be reached via phone at 877.692.9762 or email at [email protected].
AZ ROC is proud to recognize the dedication, commitment, and experience of our veterans and service members and we remain committed to honoring those experiences when these members apply for a contractor's license.
