Construction Management

Some states require exams, either by trade or a holistic contractors exam, and other states do not regulate licensing at the state level, but rely on the local-level to license individuals. If a state does not regulate licensure, it has been determined this program meets the state requirements. Visit the General Contractors License Guide for more information.
