HVAC/R (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, & Refrigeration)
The Department of Labor and Licensing provides consultation to local public health officials, architects, engineers, and other construction related offices regarding heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration. We supervise the inspection program for newly constructed public and private facilities throughout the state for compliance of the State Mechanical and Fuel Gas Codes. The department provides testing for the HVAC/R contractors and the issuance of various types of HVACR licenses, and publishes codes, rules and regulation of licensing.
The Arkansas Department of Labor and Licensing’s State HVAC/R Board has no reciprocal licensing agreements with any other state licensing Boards for HVAC/R licensing at this time.
Arkansas Department of Labor and Licensing’s HVAC/R contractor examinations are proctored by Prov, a nationally recognized licensing and examination services provider. If you would like to know more about Prov you may visit their website at provexam.com.
To sit for an Arkansas Department of Labor and Licensing HVAC/R contractor exam, you must be pre-approved by the Board. To apply for an exam please read the HVAC/R Contractor License Rules and Regulations and mail an original notarized HVAC/R Contractor Application to our office.
