Get paid to mentor New contractors

What is RMO?

RMO – Responsible Managing Officer, is the legal term used for the licensed contractor who becomes a license qualifier of a new company.

This is where you come in.

Based on your location, classification(s) and other preferences, we introduce you to up to 3 new or established contractors. You become the RMO and continue to work together until the contractors can qualify themselves.

Develop new streams of income by qualifying, mentoring, supervising and networking with the new contractor(s)

How Does It work?

A Responsible Managing Officer (RMO) is an industry professional who has already gone through the process of acquiring and maintaining an active Contractor’s License. RMOs are able to serve as license qualifiers and supervisors in California due to certain clauses in the California Business and Professions Code. These clauses, Codes §7065.1, and §7068.1 allow companies to forego the exams needed to get a Contractor’s License by hiring RMOs as supervising officers.

If you have a knack for law and construction as well as a desire to share your knowledge and increase your monthly income stream without doubling your workload, then becoming a RMO might just be your thing.
