Updated (DEC 9, 2020):To the Public, Registrants and Applicants. Due to recent increase in cases of Covid-19, it may take Board staff longer to process applications and renewals than normal, though still within our statutory guidelines. If you plan to visit the Board's office, you must make an appointment with staff beforehand. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
The Arizona Board of Technical Registration is a self-sustaining regulatory board consisting of nine members, appointed by the Governor, who represent the professional fields regulated by the Board.
Mission Statement, per A.R.S. § 32-101: "The purpose of this chapter is to provide for the safety, health and welfare of the public through the promulgation and enforcement of standards of qualification for those individuals who are registered or certified and seeking registration or certification pursuant to this chapter."
The Board reviews applications for engineers, architects, geologists, land surveyors, landscape architects, home inspectors, and alarm agents and determines if the applicants are qualified for licensure or certification. The Board also accepts complaints from the public, alleging violations of the standards of practice for these fields and creates policy statements for public guidance on health, safety, and welfare issues related to the practice of these professions.
