Deaer Brenton,

The process for obtaining a contractor's license for painting can be summerized as:

1. Obtain a Specialty Business License from the Construction LIcensing Board.

2. Attend a minimum of 14 hours of training in construction codes and administration.

3. If you are a single proprietor ship who also paints, you will not need the spcialty business lincence.

4. Apply for the license and pay the fee.

Note that there is not a license for paiting per se. you would have to get a Contractors specialty license which covers you for particular phases of a construction project, etc.
