Online Licenses for Plumbers

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) has significantly improved the time it takes to process annual plumbing license renewals by encouraging plumbing professionals to renew electronically, as opposed to postal mail. Aside from dramatically improving the time it takes to process renewals and send out new licenses (from 10 weeks to 2 weeks), the rate of professionals availing themselves to this new option has improved by over 10% in the past two years. At this time, 84% of plumbing professionals are renewing their licenses online, in part due to IDPH’s encouragement at industry events and through continuing education courses. This ultimately saves State workers an incalculable amount of time and makes a plumbing professional’s interaction with the State much more efficient.
