There are state-specific regulatory governing authorities that issue trade licences and each state has different governing bodies. Most are easily sourced via the internet or via enquiry calls. As there are quite a few, we’ve correlated some useful links and resources to help you.

Remember to do your due diligence as errors or incidences from unlicensed and unskilled contractors could be very costly!
