Licensing

Licensing in Florida

In order to build, renovate, service or repair pools / spas in Florida you must have a license issued by the Construction Industry Licensing Board (CILB) or a locally issued license that is registered with the CILB.

An AFO, CPO, CPT, FPPS or similar certificate is not a license.  These certifications do not allow the repair, installation or replacement of equipment.

A state license is not required for residential pool water treatment, however some counties do require a locally issued county license for this work.

Resources and Information:

For information on state license renewal and the subcontractor license, visit our CILB page.
