New Design, Improvements for Commission Web Site

As the Bulletin was going to press, the Commission’s newly designed Web site was being launched for the first time. Months in the making, the site has a new look and new features to facilitate its use by licensees and the general public.

Overall, users will experience faster and easier navigation among the site’s various pages and an improved search function which locates information wherever it is located on the site.

The Home page, shown here, features drop-down menus for Licensing, Education, Commission, Publications, Resources, Consumers and Forms. In the middle of the page are links to frequently accessed information relating to Rule/Law Changes, Licensees (licensee search databases), and What’s New (Commission actions and activities).

The site is best visited with the use of the Google Chrome or Foxfire Mozilla browsers, but will work well with any other.

A new feature, FAQ’s, provides commonly asked questions and answers by category (such as Applying for a license, Continuing Education, Legal General, Landlord/Tenant).

In addition, the site has been designed for display on mobile devices, automatically scaling to accommodate different screen proportions.

Users can tour the full range of the site’s features and information through a special video available from the Home page.
