Oregon Contractors License

Since 1993 our company has been helping contractors get their Oregon state contractors license. With a 99% success rate, our exam prep classes are the best in the industry.

We are currently offering live seminars to prepare for your contractor's exam. We are closely monitoring the COVID situation and most of our meeting locations are limiting the class size, practicing social distancing and requiring that all our students wear a mask, especially in the main common areas. We do have the ability to offer some courses via webinar or in some instances offer private seminars. The safety of our students and instructors is one of our top priorities and will be updating our policies as the situation dictates.
