Mississippi Building Construction Contractor Exam Prep Course

Note: MS applicants taking the Building Construction exam have a choice of trade exams. They can elect to take either the NASCLA Accredited Examination for Commercial General Building Contractors which is accepted by multiple state agencies or the MSBOC Building Construction state specific exam. There are differences in these exams. See the additional information outlined in the Candidate Information Bulletin for each exam to compare the differences and determine which exam best fits your business needs.

All Mississippi Contractor Applicants will also need to take and pass the Mississippi Business and Law exam.

"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.
