The ICC Contractor/Trades examination program is an independent testing program designed to provide licensing agencies with information regarding qualified contractors and trades professionals. Participating in the Code Council examination program does not guarantee that a licensing agency will award you a license. However, the Code Council examination program serves as an independent appraisal of your competency in the construction field, and your test results may be used by licensing agencies to satisfy the requirements for testing. Upon successful completion of the examination, contact the jurisdiction for any other requirements in order to become licensed.

With this license, you will be licensed to construct, remodel, or repair any structure or addition as a general contractor in accepting jurisdictions after obtaining certification. We cover material within the references that you are allowed to bring into the exam: the 2018 International Residential Code and the 2015 ICC Concrete Manual.

Additional Licensing Requirements

To obtain a license, you will need to apply for licensure for the jurisdiction(s) you will be performing work in. Most cities, counties, and states require an application and supporting documents to be submitted for review before issuing a contractor's license. We have state application specialists that can help walk you through the entire application process with our Application Processing Services.

"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.
