Virginia Contractors 8-Hour Pre-License Course

The Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR) requires all contractor applicants to complete an 8-Hour Pre-License Course to qualify for licensure. Our course meets DPOR's Pre-Licensing education requirement and even received DPOR's "Course of the Year" award! This course is online, pre-recorded. Course modules can be paused and resumed at a later time. You can complete this course at your own time and pace.

Course content provides guidance for operating a contracting business and can be used as a continued reference for topics such as estimating and bidding, insurance, banking and credit cards, project management, employment law, tax information, contracts, environmental issues, and other subjects. We will review the required elements of preparing a contract in accordance with regulation, explore methods in selecting customers and jobs based on license classification and experience, explore the various business structures to meet their particular needs, and tips that will help you to avoid regulatory and business problems.  This course is designed to guide contractors in making choices that will ensure compliance with regulation and maintain the license through business success.


8-Hour Pre-License Course:

This course will cover the basics of being a contractor in the state of Virginia and fulfills the DPOR Pre-License Education requirement. A certificate of completion is issued for this course and will be submitted to DPOR.

Applicants must also retain the certificate of completion for their records, as a printed copy is a required document for submitting a license application.


Course Dates:

This is an online, pre-recorded course. You can take this course at any time and can start, pause, and later resume the course where you left off; you do not have to complete the course in one sitting.

"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.
