GOV DELIVERY RENEWAL NOTIFICATIONS
If you have received an individual or company renewal reminder notification it's because you subscribed for the service through GovDelivery. GovDelivery is an independent notification service and is not interactive with The Department of Labor's database or website. If your renewal date is incorrect you will have to unsubscribe and then resubscribe with the correct date via the GovDelivery website. If you received a reminder after you have already renewed, simply disregard the renewal reminder as the service is not updated when your license renews.

Per recommendation from the Alarm, Locksmith, and Fire Sprinkler Industry Committee and approval of Labor Commissioner Melissa McLawhorn Houston, Oklahoma Department of Labor (“ODOL”):
Effective 1 June, 2018, the ODOL will no longer issue a Commercial Fire and Burglar Alarm license (trainee, technician, or manager); the license will be limited to Commercial Fire Alarm only.
Individuals who have previously been issued a Commercial Fire and Burglar Alarm license may retain the license for as long as it is timely renewed. However, if an individual allows their Commercial Fire and Burglar Alarm license to expire they will not be issued a new Commercial Fire and Burglar Alarm License, instead they will be required to meet the separate requirements to obtain a Commercial Fire Alarm license and a Residential Burglar Alarm license.
For an applicant to be issued a Commercial Fire Alarm license (trainee, technician, or manager) they must meet the mandatory requirements identified in the Alarm, Locksmith, and Fire Sprinkler Industry Act, 59 O.S. §§1800.1 – 1800.17, and Oklahoma Administrative Code (“OAC”) 380:75-3-4.
RE: THIRD-PARTY BACKGROUND CHECKS UNDER THE ALARM, LOCKSMITH, AND FIRE SPRINKLER INDUSTRY ACT, 59 O.S. §§1800.1 et seq.
On July 13, 2016, the Alarm and Locksmith Industry Committee (Committee) determined that the Alarm, Locksmith, and Fire Sprinkler Act (Act), 59 O.S. §§1800.1, et seq., permits applicants who have resided in a state other than Oklahoma within the past ten (10) years to provide a current criminal history record check from a reliable source other than the government of those previous states of residence. The authority permitting such record checks is as follows:
Oklahoma Administrative Code (OAC) 380: 75-3-2(b)(2) states:
(2) Initial applications for managers, technicians, salespersons, plan and design and trainees shall be submitted to the Department. Each applicant shall comply with the licensing procedures adopted by the Department. This registration shall be contingent on a security background investigation. Each license applicant shall provide either:
(A) An application and a current criminal history record check dated within thirty days of application from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. If the applicant has resided in any other state within the past ten (10) years, a current criminal history record check from each state of previous residence will be required. In addition, the applicant shall submit two (2) classifiable sets of fingerprints. The Commissioner may allow for the option of electronic submission of the applicants fingerprints under licensing procedures adopted by the Department. The applicant shall be photographed by the Department of Labor or an entity approved by the Department in accordance with the licensing procedures adopted by the Department. (This provides for temporary licensure for trainees only.)
(B) An application and two (2) classifiable sets of fingerprints. The Commissioner may allow for the option of electronic submission of the applicant’s fingerprints under licensing procedures adopted by the Department. The applicant shall be photographed by the Department of Labor or an entity approved by the Department in accordance with the licensing procedures adopted by the Department. (This does not provide for temporary licensure.)
Candidates may only use publisher-bound code books during the exam. Any resources that are not publisher-bound will not be allowed in the exam area. A copy of the Oklahoma Alarm, Locksmith, and Fire Sprinkler Industry Act will be provided by the test center and collected upon completion of the test.
