What is the NASCLA Exam and Who needs it?


What is the NASCLA Exam?

The NASCLA-Accredited Examination Program was designed to assist contractors who need to be licensed in multiple jurisdictions. The following states accept the NASCLA Accredited Examination: AL, AR, AZ, GA, LA, MS, NV, NC, OR, SC, TN, UT, US Virgin Islands, VA, and WV.

Why should I take the NASCLA Exam?

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.

Are other exams required to become licensed in the NASCLA 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.

When you pass the NASCLA Accredited Examination for Commercial General Building Contractors, you will be listed in the NASCLA National Examination Database.

How do I prepare for the NASCLA Exam?

The Builders License Training Institute offers a comprehensive online exam prep course that will guide you through the exam.
