What is a certified employee?

Jason Smith -

Tenn. Code Ann. § 68-126-404(a) requires at least one (1) person who actually performs installation work at the site to be certified by the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance (“Commissioner”).   In order to receive a certification, a person must apply for certification as an employee of an installer.  The application must be accompanied by proof of having completed a fifteen (15)-hour  course and passed an examination approved by the Commissioner covering the installation of manufactured homes. There is no application fee associated with an employee certification application.  All certifications expire one (1) year from the date of issuance.

Online applications are not available for certifications.  An application can be requested from a Section employee and either mailed or faxed to the Section.  The Section phone number is (615) 741-7192 and the Section mailing address is:
