Minimum requirements for becoming in a licensed Glass and Glazing Contractor:

  • Must be 18 years of age

  • 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.
    • Note: 3 years of any accredited college credits can be used in place of construction experience regardless of the subject matter/courses.

The experience must be verifiable and under a licensed Glass and Glazing contractor.
