Applicants must use the revised DPL-1 form that we sent out in last week’s update.The form is still confusing. The information contained in the form should be the applicant's information including their signature at the bottom.
There is a License Board Meeting on Monday, December 10, 2018. We will be addressing some of the issues at that time.

Please note that the DPL-1 form ( )
is to be completed by the candidate not the licensee.
Also note that the system will not accept any email that has already been used for any E-filing account.
Many members have been emailing the Office stating that their applications to have workers grandfathered for the limited gas work qualification have been rejected, stating that a social security earnings report must be submitted. We have contacted DOB Licensing and explained that these reports will not be available for the 2018 calendar year. Other emails have stated that the system has had issues. The DOB has responded:
Good Afternoon:
Please be advised that the DOB Now Licensing site is up and running, I have not received any calls concerning the site being down as of yesterday.
Pay stubs will be acceptable for those claiming 2018 experience only, anyone claiming experience prior to 2018 will need to submit Social Security history of earnings.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
We have suggested that payroll reports should also be accepted. The candidates for this qualification only need six months experience. If your office does payroll directly, you can create a PDF with an earnings statement that proves six months of experience. If you have a payroll service, they can provide you with a payroll report. Make sure the report includes the candidate's social security information. The employee can also provide a payroll stub that proves the time required.
NOTE: Candidates wishing to obtain this qualification through the grandfathering process must have their applications submitted, without errors, prior to the deadline of December 31, 2018. If they do not successfully complete this process, they will have to complete an approved 16-hour course. We are working on developing a course at this time.
We have included a sample letter below that can be used as a template for limited gas work qualifications. If you have any issues, please email us immediately at .
