The state of Vermont does not require construction contractors to be licensed. Check other local jurisdiction requirements. Electrical contractors need to be certified to work in Vermont.
We're not promoting additional licensing requirements for contractors who are charged with maintaining the exacting skills required for the serious and dangerous task of erecting structures sometimes in excess of 1,000 feet tall. However, it's interesting to note that, engineers, architects and, yes, cosmetology demonstrators must be licensed by Vermont's Office of Professional Regulation. Let's lock up those free spritzing cologne demonstrators who don't properly advise their customers that they should pat and not rub perfume into the skin as this damages the perfume's molecular structure. In addition, of course, there are the nauseating confined space violations, such as wearing cheap cologne in an elevator.
