Work That Does and Does Not Require an Oregon Contractor License

(Jeff Sorg, OnlineEd® – Portland, OR) Anyone doing work in Oregon for compensation in any construction-related activity that involves improvements to real estate is to be licensed with the Oregon Construction Contractor Board.

There are some exemptions from licensure, provided there isn’t any advertising to obtain the work, including over the internet, business cards, and signs.

These are two exceptions:

  • If the price of the work performed is under $500
  • If the work is casual, minor, or inconsequential in nature

Some examples of work that DOES require a license:

  • Floor covering
  • Siding
  • Painting
  • Roofing
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Tree Service
  • Concrete
  • Heating
  • Air conditioning
  • On-Site appliance repair
  • Home inspections
  • Land Development
  • Manufactured dwelling installations

Some examples of work that does not require a license:

  • Gutter cleaning
  • Pressure washing
  • Debris removal or cleanup (yard or construction site)

30,000 Mortgage Loan Originators Still Need to Complete Their CE

OnlineEd

(OnlineEd – Portland, OR) Over 30,000 mortgage loan originators must still meet their CE requirement before the national deadline, which is December 31. A few states have earlier deadlines, however. Georgia MLOs, for example, must complete their education requirements before October 31.

CE for mortgage brokers is relatively simple to complete. Approved providers can deliver their approved courses either online or by live lecture.  The NMLS approves providers and qualifying courses. It is important to look for the required course approval number when searching for courses and providers. The NMLS requires posting of provider and course approval numbers when the advertiser uses the NMLS logo in advertising.

The 8-hour approved NMLS course is to include 3 hours of federal laws and regulations, 2 hours of ethics, 2 hours of non-traditional loans (loans other than 30-year mortgage loans), and a 1 hour elective course. To find out if your state has a requirement for additional hours beyond the NMLS requirement, check our list of state-specific deadlines or visit the NMLS Website.

To understand all that is involved with the license renewal process and to get renewed on time with the least amount of trouble, applicants should be sure to watch this helpful video.

FREE Class – How To Make 2011 A Great Year With An Effective Plan


OnlineEd

Everybody needs a plan. Plans help people succeed. An action plan is, without a doubt, the most valuable component in any business strategy. Consider it a road map full of stops before you reach the destination of success. The term “road map” is a poor descriptor, however. Think of it more like a location-aware GPS device with enabled turn-by-turn navigation and you’ll get a better idea of how important it is.

Road map’s are universal, which is great because it means anybody pick one up and use it relatively easily but, they are also static, or unchangeable. Those adjectives don’t look very good describing an action plan. A GPS is dynamic, like an action plan should be. An action plan should be personal to an individual or a business. It should contain specific tasks, a time frame for those tasks, and a budget. It is a good idea to refer back to the original plan every so often to analyze progress, make additions based on new information, or scrap the plan entirely and start fresh.

As you can see there is far too much information for a blog post, which is why we are bringing you a FREE class.
