Swimming pool assemblers and athletic agents are among the professionals who will no longer need to obtain state credentials to do their jobs, according to a bill signed by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy into law this week.
Senate Bill 191, which takes effect Jan. 1, 2018, phases out occupational licenses for several jobs that don’t have educational or professional prerequisites. The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection previously required the credentials.
Among occupations no longer needing a license, registration, or certificate are: above-ground swimming pool installer, uniform student athlete agents, licensed shorthand reporters, residential flat glass or automotive glazier, and real estate intern.
