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. 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 perform roofing, re-roofing, roof insulation, and roof drainage. We cover all the material within the references that you are allowed to bring into the exam: the 2015 International Building Code and the 2015 International Plumbing Code.
