Since 1993 our company has been helping contractors get their Rhode Island 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.

Contractors License Overview

  • Contracting work in Rhode Island is regulated on the state level.
  • All contractors and subcontractors (excluding electricians, plumbers, and mechanical contractors) must complete registration with the Contractors’ Registration and Licensing Board by submitting an application with proof of insurance. Anyone performing work on residential structures must also complete 5 hours of pre-education courses. No exam is required.
  • Certain contractors must also be licensed by the Contractors’ Registration and Licensing Board, which can require an exam or additional training hours, depending on the license. Contractors that must be licensed include; well drillers, pump installers, water-filtration/treatment system contractors, underground utility contractors, and commercial roofers.
  • Electrical, plumbing, and mechanical contractors are licensed by the RI Dept. of Labor and Training. All must submit an application for the license to show that they meet all requirements, including experience, to gain approval to take the required trade exams.
