Kansas Standard General Building Contractor A (ICC K9A) Exam Prep Course

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. We cover all the material within the references that you are allowed to bring into the exam: the 2012 International Building Code and the 2015 ICC Concrete Manual. 


Exam Prep Class:

This class will prepare you to take the Kansas General Building Contractor Exam, also referred to as the ICC K9A exam, administered by Pearson VUE. We cover all the material that you are allowed to bring into the exam.

Some licensing agencies may require you to apply through them prior to testing with ICC, while others may not. You should check with the licensing agency you are applying to for licensing requirements prior to registering for an examination.

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.
