WYOMING CONTRACTOR FAQ

Contractor licensing (except electrical) is not done by the state of Wyoming.  Rather, the option to license contractors is deferred to the local jurisdiction where the construction activity is to take place.  Local contacts are found at this site:   http://www.wyomuni.org/index.asp?Type=B_BASIC&SEC={FEF86229-DEE1-4564-A608-A88AB8796AF2}

For electrical licensing contact the State Fire MARSHAL (307-777-7288)  at: http://wyofire.state.wy.us/electricalsafety/examinationandlicensing.html

For a profit corporation, LLC, or limited partnership to transact business in Wyoming, it must file for Certificate of Authority with the Secretary of State (307-777-7311) at: http://soswy.state.wy.us/Forms/FormsFiling.aspx?startwith=Business
