Default Profile Approval?

So what do you do to approve a profile.

What kind of certification is required?

Default Welcome SandTech

Hey there sandtech... thought I would jump in here and try to help you. Re-phrase your question again.... not sure of I understand exactly what you're asking. Are wanting to become a provider? This forum is a fantastic place to get answers for your questions.... we've all had them and all asked them!

Default Certification

Depending on your profession, certification is required by states and locales. Example-- HVAC, plumbers and electrician's have to be certified by all states and the majority, if not all, locales. I cannot answer about computer troubleshooters.... tv repairmen, athletic equipment installers etc-- you would need to contact your state for that.
Service Live doesn't "certfiy" anyone-- per se, that really isnt their function or purpose.
So-- safe to say that if the state you live in requires you to be certified to do-what-you-do... then I'd do it.

Most states require that you be licensed and most service hubs require insurance but I suppose servicelive does not require this.

Default Insurance Information

SandTech,

As an individual, insurance is up to you. However, ServiceLive does require that you carry insurance (auto, GL and WC) atleast at the state minimums to participate on our platform. Keep in mind that as we continue to sign large companies and OEMs as buyers they may have their own insurance requirements for providers to be able to perform services for their account.

Connecticut Insurance Info:

Licensing, certifications and permits are absolutely mandated by your State. Actually they are often mandated down to the county.

Connecticut Business License Info:

The State of Ct Department of Revenue Services requires all doing business in CT to have a business tax id. If you don't have that then I think you shouldn’t be getting work thru here. If you are doing business without one then you risk going to jail.

I do computers amongst other things, but I say if your going to do this you should have A+ Certification and/or be degreed in computers from a University, College or Community College
