Below are some common questions students have about our Florida Plumbing Contractor exam prep and licensing program. Feel free to contact our team of Trade Specialists directly with any questions.

Am I required to take a class to get my contractor’s license?

While there are no required classes to qualify you to become a Florida Certified Contractor, we do encourage you to take one of our online courses to help you prepare to take your exams.

Do I actually need a contractor’s license?

If you are performing contractor related services for compensation, you would likely need to be licensed in the specialty that you are working in. Check with both the local and State government agencies to determine if your scope of work requires a license.

Do I need to purchase the state reference books?

Yes. The state exam is open book and to pass it you will need to have all of the business and finance and trade books specific to your license. We also recommend purchasing the Highlighted and Tabbed books if you can, giving you an advantage when it comes to knowing where to look during your timed exams. We teach you how to navigate these books quickly so that you will successfully pass the exams and get your license.
