ER I's supporting this new unit will focus on enforcing the state's contractor laws, with a special emphasis on combating unlicensed activity. They will also be responsible for investigating complaints and recommending appropriate action. ER I's will also gain and maintain the confidence and cooperation of law enforcement officials and officers. They also review contractors' license applications and coordinate industry expert inspections to ensure compliance with state contracting laws. ER I's also participate in the CSLB's Speakers Bureau, informing and instructing consumers, licensees, and government agencies about state contracting laws.

Applicants must have a valid driver's license prior to being hired. They must be willing to work odd and irregular hours and travel will be required.
