    No, I did not keep my license active. It was in California and I let it expire when I moved out of CA. California AIA does not recognize other states for reciprocal licensing so other states do not recognize CA licenses. Not only would I have had to retest in another state the insurance alone was prohibitive. My other option would have been to go through NCARB, and again, the insurance was way too high to justify when I was not working in that field any longer. I let my NGBS (Green Building) certification expire for the same reasons. The insurance for NGBS is double the cost of insurance as an ICC Inspector and the demand is not very high for NGBS certified verifiers.
