Answers

 

Do I need a license to work in Delaware if I am licensed in another state?
Answer: Yes. The Delaware Board of Plumbing, Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVACR) Examiners must issue you a license to so any plumbing or HVACR work in Delaware.

 

How do I apply for licensure?on this

Answer: You should first review the instructions for licensure on this website. If you want a Master Plumber license, see Master Plumber Licensure. If you want a Master HVACR or Master HVACR Restricted license, see HVACR Licensure. You may apply for a license at any time using DELPROS online portal. You just need to create DELPROS user account, then log in using your DELPROS user account information.  Complete the application, upload your supporting documents, and pay the fee with a credit/debit card. We will send you email notifications throughout the whole application process. When you receive a notification that your license is approved, you may print your license.

 

Does Delaware have reciprocity?

Answer: Yes. If you hold a current license in another jurisdiction (U.S. state, territory or District of Columbia) where the licensure requirements are substantially similar to Delaware’s requirements, you may be licensed by reciprocity.  See Master Plumber Licensure or HVACR Licensure for more information.

 

How long does it take to get a license?

Answer: With DELPROS, application processing is very efficient, however, the amount of time it takes varies based on how quickly the application and all supporting documents are submitted and considered “complete”. When the application is complete, it is reviewed for approval of licensure on or before the next Board meeting. The meeting schedule is available on the State of Delaware public meeting calendar..

 

How much does a license cost?

Answer: See Fee Schedule.

 

Do I need to have a U.S. Social Security Number in order to obtain a license?

Answer: For information, see Request for Exemption from Social Security Number Requirement. However, when you go through the application process in DELPROS, you will be asked for your SSN. If you do not have one, you will be asked two further questions. You do not have to fill out this form.
