Do I actually need a contractors license?
The answer is almost always yes. If you are performing construction/contractor related services for compensation, you almost certainly need to be licensed in the specialty that you are working in. There are some small exceptions for handyman services, but the scope of work is very limited and if you step outside of it (electrical, plumbing, etc), you will be violating license laws .
Is my tuition really valid for 1 year?
YES! We stand behind your success from start to finish. We understand that some students will be able to dive into the material and complete their studying in just 2 months, while others are busy and need longer to prepare. We do not charge any additional review fees for any of our contractor courses, reviews, or workshops during your 1 year tuition period.
Do I need to purchase the state reference books?
Yes. The state exam is open book and to pass it you will need to have of the business and finance and trade books specific to your license. We also highly recommend purchasing the related tabs. Our curriculum is built around teaching you how to navigate these books quickly so that you will successfully pass the exams and get your license. Books and tabs can be purchased during the enrollment process either through the website, over the phone, or by visiting our online bookstore and selecting the complete sets related to the license you are pursuing.
