Course Overview

Description, benefits & features

This course is made up of a detailed presentation that takes you through all the information you will need to pass the exam on your first try.

A Tennessee contractor’s license is required first prior to bidding, contracting or offering a price to perform work. A contractor’s license is required in Tennessee (TN) prior to bidding any project that exceeds $25,000. Subcontractors who perform work in electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and HVAC projects exceeding $25,000 are also required to be licensed.

Per the process conducted through the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance, the first step to get a contractors license is to pass two exams: a Business & Law exam and a trade exam (for various classifications). On the application, you must also specify the classification of license you are applying for.  Here is a complete list of license classifications and exams needed.

    The course was easy to follow, and helped draw attention to the most important information needed. I was not expecting to have a math / calculations portion – what an added bonus! I don’t know what I would have done without this prep course.
