Section 34-31-29 - Examinations generally; reciprocity agreements.

(a) The board shall provide for examinations which test the knowledge, skill, and proficiency of the applicants.

(b) Examinations shall be held at such time and place as may be fixed by the board at least once each three-month period. Written notice of the place of examinations shall be mailed to all persons who have filed current applications for the examinations of the board.

(c) The board may charge each applicant and retesting applicants for examination a reasonable fee based on the actual costs for administering the examinations. Applicants must stand for the examination within one year from the date the board receives the examination application and fees, otherwise the applicant must resubmit an application and appropriate fees.

(d) The board may enter into reciprocity agreements with other states to permit Alabama certified contractors to engage in work in other states in exchange for that state's contractors being permitted to perform work in Alabama. This provision recognizes the status of the certified contractor as having passed the examination; however, all certification fees are required to be paid.
