Testimonials

 

Gold Coast Schools is the absolute best school to go to for General Contractor’s license, they have many options of learning the material. From Online Tests, in class lectures, and even all day cram courses. Wally Lawson is a great GC teacher and I would highly recommend going to his classes in Boca for help regarding anything. Passed all three state tests and I am more than happy with my money being spent on Gold Coast Schools.Troy Butcher
Had a truly amazing experience with Gold Coast Schools. Since the day I signed up for my General Contracting Course with Maggy, to taking my last class a week ago; I have never seen so much dedication from a school to help a student pass the state exam. The Construction School, led by Professor Sanjeev Mangoli, helped me pass all 3 state level exams on the first try. In addition to Sanjeev, Professors Lawson and Sawyer led workshops and classes that helped me develop a study plan to tackle the state exams. I did not just leave class with study materials, but with lifelong friends (former classmates) who will help me in my future construction career. Thank you again guys, I plan on taking all of my continuing education courses (Real Estate Broker/GC) at the school again in the not too distant future.Ricky Patel

Roofing Contractor License Requirements in Florida:

  • 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…Financial Responsibility Course!
  • Four years of proven general construction experience. (FAR 61G4-15.001)
    • 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.

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 Roofing Contractor with an equal to or higher certification.
