Pursuant to House Bill 636, all applicants and licensees will soon be required to submit a copy of their fingerprints so that the TSBPE can conduct a criminal history check. That means all plumbers in the state of Texas, regardless of license type, will be required to have their fingerprints on file with the TSBPE.
What Should You do?
Get ahead of the curve. The fingerprint requirement will eventually become a deficiency that will prevent you from renewing your license or applying for examinations and endorsements. If you have not had your fingerprints scanned and submitted to the TSBPE, schedule your appointment today.
How Should You do it?
The TSBPE has made a handy-dandy instruction sheet with all the info you need to get this done. Print it out, email it to your fleet; do whatever you need to do to help yourself or the plumbers you work with satisfy this obligation.
