Unfortunately, the state of Pennsylvania does not require contactors, plumbers or handymen to be licensed. Furthermore, they are not required to pass an exam or complete any continuing educational courses. In 2008, Pennsylvania did implement the Home Improvement Contractor Registration act, which basically requires all home improvement contractors to pay a $50 annual fee to become registered. However, there is no active enforcement of the policy. Contractors are not required to take exams and new home construction companies are exempt from the act.
