We understand that the details of how to get your Glazing Contractors License can be overwhelming, but the next few pages will clarify the process that you need to follow.


Glazing Contractor Exam Prep Program

Unlike many other license categories (Real Estate, Insurance, etc) there are no required pre-license courses that must be taken before you can take your state exam. The state will allow anyone and everyone to take the contractor’s exam, however the object is to pass it the very first time. We make that possible with our exclusive program.

Gold Coasts Exam Prep program is offered in two formats:

  1. Full Service Contractor Exam-Prep    Tuition: $599

See below for complete details.

Your Full-service Contractor Exam Prep Program will be divided into 3 parts all of which are included in your tuition.

Part I:

  • Comprehensive study guides complete with audio/visual presentations
  • Our exclusive module workbook that is topic specific with self contained learning segments
  • Exclusive exhibits
  • Multiple practice exams and optional online exam simulator

Part II:

  • Personal one on one tutoring one night a week with Joe Rebuck, Director of the School of Construction, who will guide you through the reference books and prepare you to be successful on the state exam.

Your tuition is valid for one year allowing you to take as many of these tutoring sessions as you would like.

Part III:

  • Intensive Cram Sessions one weekend each month (Cram’s are in-depth reviews of exam style questions and scenarios and are designed to drive home the key topics needed to be successful on the state exam).

Enrolled students can repeat these crams at no extra charge as often as necessary within your one year tuition period.

Below will describe the basic requirements for becoming in a licensed Glazing Contractor:

  • Must be 18 years of age
  • Have good moral character. (A criminal incident in the past does not prevent you from getting a license so long as you have had your civil rights restored, all debts to society paid, no pending or current liens such as IRS, and have no pending or ongoing criminal litigation).
  • Credit worthy. (Applicants will be subject to a credit report on both the applicant and the business with a preferred FICO score of a 660 or above. )
    • If you do not meet the 660 FICO score, you CAN still get your license by posting a licensing bond.
      • Bond amounts vary based on whether the applicant is a Division I or Division II contractor, however this amount can be reduced by 50% upon taking a board-approved financial responsibility course.
      • Gold Coast offers this course in addition to our exam prep programs: Learn more…Click Here!
  • Four years of general construction experience. (See below for experience details)

4 years of necessary experience:

You must have 4 years of general construction experience, however up to 3 years of experience can be substituted by years spent in college (1 year of college is considered approximately 30 credit hours). The college courses can be ANY college level courses, and do not need to be in the construction field. If you have a four year college degree, you qualify as having 3 years of construction experience. The 4th year of construction experience must be acquired through gaining field experience. For Glazing Contractors, you must have been a supervisor or foreman involved in the scheduling, delivery, staging, and installation of glazing, window, and door assemblies. The experience can be verified by another glazing contractor or by a residential, building, or general contractor.

Important note about experience:

Experience does not have to be gained in Florida or even the USA so long as it can be verified and notarized by a State Certified Florida Licensed Glazing or General Contractor, Architect, or Engineer that will attest to the fact that they personally know you, and have direct knowledge of your involvement on glazing projects for at least a one year period. This verifier does not have to be your employer.

You do not have to have the necessary experience before you take the exam. In fact, after passing the state exam you have up to 4 years to gain the necessary experience to become a licensed Glazing Contractor.
