Alabama Home Builder Skill Exam Prep Course

An Alabama Home Builder Skill exam covers the technical trade elements of homebuilding.

An Alabama Home Builder is one who constructs or offers to construct a residential building less than four stories in height, containing no more than four separate residences, and costing in excess of $10,000. All Residential construction in Alabama is regulated by the Alabama Home Builders Licensure Board (HBLB). If you're looking for a commercial contractor license, you will instead apply to the Alabama General Contractors Board.

"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.
