Frequently Asked Questions
What is the NASCLA – Accredited Commercial Contractors Exam?
The NASCLA-Accredited Commercial Contractors exam is accepted in eight States: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. This means that by passing one exam, you can easily become licensed to do commercial work in all eight states. Most of the states will require you to also pass the Business and Law exam for that State, but you will not be required to pass a separate Commercial Trades exam.
When you pass the NASCLA Accredited Examination for Commercial General Building Contractors, you will be listed in the NASCLA National Examination Database. You will then have this information available when you apply in any of the states that accept it. You may also need to take each states’ specific business/law/project management exam in addition to the NASCLA exam.
Why Take the NASCLA-Accredited Exam?
The NASCLA-Accredited Examination Program was designed to assist contractors who need to be licensed in multiple jurisdictions. If you think your commercial business, at any point, will overflow into any of the eight states listed above, you will save time and money by passing the NASCLA-Accredited exam, rather than passing a Commercial Trades exam in each of the States.
You will still need to pass a Business & Law exam in each of the States except Arkansas. Arkansas will accept the NASCLA-Accredited exam as both the Trades and Business/Law.
What do I need to know to pass the NASCLA-Accredited Exam?
There are 115 questions and you must get 81 answers correct. You will have 330 minutes to complete the exam. The subjects covered in the exam are listed below, however, the questions are taken at random from a large pool of questions making sure that all contractors are taking a different exam.
Subject Area and # of Questions
- Estimating, Bidding & Pre-construction – 23 questions
- Project Management – 28 questions
- Project Construction- 32 questions
- Project Closeout – 9 questions
- Business & Financial Management – 23 questions
The NASCLA-Accredited Examination has replaced the Commercial Contracting licensing exam in Alabama. There is not an Alabama Trades exam for commercial contractors. The NASCLA-Accredited Examination Program was designed to assist contractors who need to be licensed in multiple jurisdictions.
This exam is based on information taken from a variety of books that we have listed in our book packages, as well as random questions based on trade knowledge and general industry practices. You are allowed to take the books into the exam with you, so we recommend that you purchase them from our Bookstore and highlight the areas of importance. You may also see a variety of construction math problems included on the exam, so we highly recommend that you view the construction math tutorial that comes with this course.
Reference material may be highlighted, underlined, indexed and tabbed with permanent tabs only. They must be otherwise unmarked (not written in) and may not contain additional paper. These references are not available at the testing center, but you can take them into the exam with you.
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.
How long does it take to complete the NASCLA Accredited Exam Course?
This is an extensive course that takes your through most of the 20 reference books that are allowed into the exam with you. You should allow 24-30 hours to thoroughly review the course and complete all sample test questions.
