What We Do

Our Goals

Our number one goal is to educate and prepare contractors to pass their test the first try with ease and confidence,
And to give the best value of materials and instruction so that the material is easily recalled and retrieved.


No-Pass, No-Pay Guarantee

We strive to get ready to take all the exams and pass them on the first attempt.  If you follow our method and tab and highlight everything that we guide you through, you are more than likely going to be able to pass the exam on the first attempt.

However, if you do not pass on the first attempt, we will help tailor a personalized study plan to prepare you for your next examination attempt.  You need to send us your examination report from the testing center so that we can determine where you need to focus.

If for any reason you still cannot pass the exam after multiple attempts and you have followed our curriculum and suggestions, we will fully refund you for the cost of your exam prep course.

Our students do very well on these tests after taking our class.  Very few struggle with the material after we instruct them on the exams.  If you do, we will help you as much as we can. We have thousands and thousands of happy customers.  We want you to be one too!


State Recognition

Our Tradesmen Continuing Education Classes are fully recognized by the Commonwealth of Virginia, Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation. In fact, we were the first vendor to be certified by the state of Virginia Provider Number 2730000001
