Alabama General Contractor/National NASCLA Exam Prep Course

The NASCLA Accredited Examination Program was designed to assist contractors who seek contractor licenses 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 accepting the examination, reducing redundant licensing requirements. 

In Alabama, NASCLA Exam transcripts are accepted for commercial construction applicants. The Alabama Home Builders Licensure Board (HBLB) does not currently accept NASCLA Exam transcripts.

The National NASCLA Accredited Exam for Commercial General Building Contractors is recognized as a trade exam for commercial licenses 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 NASCLA Exam transcripts for licenses that include residential construction.

"I Recommend Using The Services Of Contractor Training Center If You Are Serious About Passing The Exam. "

They don't waste your time with fluff. They arm you with all the right tools and give you special insights that you just won't get anywhere else. I would definitely choose them again if I have any future test requirements.
