National NASCLA Commercial General Building Contractor Exam Prep Course

The NASCLA Accredited Examination Program was designed to assist contractors who need to be licensed in multiple jurisdictions. Contractors who take the accredited examination can access NASCLA’s Examination Database (NED) and request that their results be sent to other jurisdictions that accept the examination, thereby reducing redundant licensing requirements. 

The NASCLA Accredited Exam for Commercial Building Contractors is recognized as a trade exam for commercial licensing in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia & the Virgin Islands.

Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, the US Virgin Islands, Utah, and West Virginia also accept the NASCLA Commercial Builder Exam for licenses involving residential construction.


Exam Prep Class:

This class will prepare you to take the National NASCLA Commercial General Building Contractor exam at PSI. Our course reviews important test-taking strategies and familiarizes you with content areas within each reference manual that you need to know before sitting for the exam.

The Online Pre-Recorded course content includes highlighting instructions and practice exam questions for each book, as well as a simulation Practice Exam that mirrors subject areas, number of questions, and format/layout of the real exam at PSI. Our practice exams are dynamic and pull new questions from our over 1,100 question bank each attempt, so you can keep practicing navigating your books within a time limit until you feel prepared for the real open-book exam.

Pre-Recorded classes are available to you immediately upon purchase and can be completed at your own time and pace. If you purchase a Live Webinar or Live Classroom course, you will also receive the pre-recorded content immediately after purchase.

"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.
