My husband has a sole proprietorship with his general contractors

Resolved Question:

My husband has a sole proprietorship with his general contractor's license, KGH Construction. A local business, Lowry's Home Interior, is expanding into kitchen and bath improvement, and wants to partner up with him. If Lowry's bids the jobs, do they need Ken's license to do so?
Can Lowry's do the bids, and just sub-contract to KGH?

Someone mentioned to him that he must register them as a "Certified Sales Associate"
for them to be able to sell his services.

bizlaw :

Unless the business is a licensed contractor they cannot do bids for work without a contractor's license. Does the local business have such a license? Do they personnel that would actually do contracting work or are they selling kitchens and bathrooms and your husband would handle the installation?
