    In order to get licensed in Hillsborough county you had to have at least 1 year experience in irrigation under the supervision of a licensed contractor, 2 letters of recommendation from contractors, 1 letter of recommendation from bank or financial institution, 2 personal letters of recommandation, credit check, background check, seek approval from the county board of developement, them pass the exams. Lots of hoops to jump through!
