  • Credit score of 660 or above
    • If you do not meet the 660 FICO score, you CAN still get your license by posting a licensing bond.  This bond can be reduced by 50% upon completed a Financial Responsibility course.
  • Four years of proven general construction experience. (FAR 61G4-15.018)
    • You do not have to have the necessary experience before you take the exam.
      • The test scores are valid for 4 years meaning you have 4 years to gain the required experience after passing the state exam.

We are committed to answering all of your questions.  Below are common questions students have about our contractor exam prep program.  As always, feel free to contact our helpful career counselors at 1-800-732-9140 for additional information.


Where can I find my class module/topic schedule to know what is being taught each night?

The student resources section of our website includes class schedules as well as other valuable pieces of information.   Simply select the license you are preparing for in the “Schedule & Module Calendar” section:  Click Here!


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 contractor state reference books?

Yes.  The contractor state exams are open book and to pass you will need to have of the business and finance and trade books.   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.
