Alabama General Contractor/National NASCLA Exam Prep Course
The NASCLA-Accredited Examination Program was designed to assist contractors who need to be licensed in multiple jurisdictions. Contractors who take the accredited examination can access NASCLA’s Examination Database (NED) and request that their results be sent to other jurisdictions that accept the examination, thereby reducing redundant licensing requirements.
In Alabama, NASCLA is accepted for commercial construction.
The NASCLA Accredited license is recognized for commercial licensing in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia & the Virgin Islands.
Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, the US Virgin Islands, Utah, and West Virginia also accept the NASCLA license to cover residential construction.
Exam Prep Class:
This class will prepare you to take the National NASCLA Commercial General Building Contractor exam at PSI. We cover all the material that you are allowed to bring into the exam.
The online pre-recorded content is included with the purchase of any live course to serve as a follow-up study material. Pre-Recorded content includes highlighting instructions and practice exam questions for each book.
Pre-Recorded classes are available to you immediately upon purchase and can be completed at your own time and pace.
Class Days and Times:
This prep course is available in three options: Pre-Recorded, Live In-Class, and Live-Streamed Webinar.
Live Classes are a one-day intensive prep course, held on:
8:30 am – 5:30 pm ET
The exam at PSI is open-book. You may bring the approved references into the exam, and reference manuals may be tabbed and highlighted. Tabs must be permanent adhesive tabs - removable tabs such as post-its are not allowed in the examination center. We sell permanent tabs for the NASCLA exam book bundle here.
You may take up to 21 approved reference manuals into the exam. We suggest using 19 of the 21 references, as two of the manuals contain duplicate material found within the other 19 books. You can find our NASCLA exam prep book bundle here.
Alabama requires all contractor applicants to take and pass both a business law exam and a technical exam. NASCLA fulfills the technical exam requirement for commercial contractors. We also offer exam prep services and materials for the Alabama General Contractors Business and Law exam here.
Applying for the Exam
NASCLA requires pre-approval to schedule the exam at a PSI Testing Center. You can find the application here at ned.nascla.org.
The NASCLA Organization usually processes these applications in about a week. Once you receive approval, you may register and schedule for an exam at PSI's website here.
