cool video, right? would be better with nacho fries.


We put a video up there because we know you don’t want to read. Because who wants to read? Crazy people. Like me. And maybe like you. So if you do like to read, keep reading, because I’m writing.


I don’t know if I should tell you this, but we have so many five star reviews it’s not even funny. I’m not laughing. You definitely aren’t laughing. So just drop it.

Sure, we’ve helped a lot of people get their contractors licenses. Sure we’ve had thousands of students. Sure our passion is your success. Big whoop. Do I watch ‘I Love Lucy’ re-runs every night? You bet. Does it matter? Not really.

I don’t know where I’m going with this.

The point is this, being a contractor school is awesome, like being a lion or a rhino. Those are cool animals. Cool cats. Just like you.

And just like you, they need their contractors licenses.

Do you think the lion (or lioness) became king of the jungle by NOT getting their contractor license? Think again.

Sure, we can guarantee you can pass the state tests and get your license if you join our program. We can even promise we’ll help you every step of the way.

No one cares. Because there are no fireworks involved. People just want fireworks. I do.

So here’s the deal: if you love fireworks, and you think lions are pretty cool, and you want your contractors license, we’ll help you.

It’s what we do.

You might even get free gelato. That’s not a promise. I’m just saying, you might be at the beach or the zoo and someone might offer you free gelato.

Time will tell.

And it is: it’s telling you not to wait to pursue your dreams, to better yourself.

You don’t need a sign from God to buy a flat screen TV and a surround sound system, so why do you need a sign to better yourself–for yourself, your friends and family.

You don’t. God wants you to be better. This is your sign.

Have faith. Like the lions.

The end.

“There is nothing impossible to they who will try.”
— Alexander the Great

Locations, Locations, Gandalf

We have so many locations, we’re like Middle-Earth. Welcome to the Shire, I guess. Here are a few of our outposts:

Chula Vista

The Mayans may have invented this city. We’re not sure. But we have class here on Tuesdays.


This school is right on the border of Anaheim. We can see Sauron’s tower from our classroom — or it might just be a tall building or a weird-shaped immovable cloud. No one knows.


Temecula is know for its wine country. And also for us. That’s pretty much it. And we love that. We have class here on Wednesday nights.


You can never have enough Corona in the world. I’m not talking about the beer — I’m talking about the city. Main Street is the beez-knees. And we have class here on Monday nights.

Home Study

Some people prefer our home study package because they live on submarines and don’t have great wifi connections. Remember Broadband? I know right.


Some people prefer our online course because they live on submarines and have fantastic internet connections. Remember Broadband? I don’t.


A lot people ask us: when are you going to introduce free Cinnabon into the program, as in Cinnamon rolls? The answer is simple. But first, here are a few pages we want to highlight, in case you’re interested in learning more:

How To Become A General Contractor
How To Get Your Contractors License Online
How To Get Your Contractors License From Home
How To Study To Get Your Contractors License
Contractors License Requirements
Types of Contractors Licenses (All Classifications)

To answer the Cinnamon Roll question, we’re on a strict bring your own (as well as one for your teacher) policy at the moment. Check back for future updates.

FAQ Time. Amen.

Pretty much everyone at our school is friendly. But some might be vampires. One can never be too sure.

How does California do its thing?

California is chillin’ — hang loose, brother. Or sister.

How long does it take to get a contractors license?

That depends on how long it takes you to bing-watch the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy. Just kidding. That’s irrelevant, but also not. Because the process you’re about to embark on is a journey. It’s gonna take a little bit of time. Our classes technically take only four weeks. Our home study program goes faster. You can cram in the classes and material much faster, and you can also cram eleven cookies into your VCR.

But the process of getting your contractors license in the beautiful state of California (more on that later) takes at least two or more months. It takes the states a few weeks, anywhere from four to eight (somethimes longer) to process your application. They may get faster one day. They also may take up fry cooking as a side gig. That’s not a joke. Fry cooks are important. I might become one. I made a pancake today.

Moving on, after the state processes your application they give you a test date. Once you pass your tests you will receive your provisional license number. Then you will have to get a Surety bond and a livescan. And pass an open-book asbestos test. After all of that is over, and you’ve watched the new Batman movie, you’ll get your license.

Sound confusing?

Enroll in our classes and we’ll clear that up right away.

And then you’ll see clearly, because the rain will be gone.

CSLB Processing Times?

I kinda, sorta answered this question in the earlier question, but if you insist on asking twice I will insist that you stop insisting and that you close the door on your way out of my floral-printed office. As I sit behind my desk, which is covered in Star Wars action figures, and contemplate the meaning of life.

CSLB is sometimes slow. And it’s sometimes fast. They take usually four to eight weeks. Give or take. To process applications.

Okay, time to watch Sweeney Todd.

Is there a Contractors License School near me?

You’re looking at us.

We’re right here.


And even if we’re far, you can enroll in our homeschool or online programs.

Or you can join a circus and get some paid-for traveling in the corpus of your life. (That was the weirdest sentence I’ve ever written. I am so sorry).

What are the requirements?

Remember in class when they took roll-call and you had to raise your hand and say your name? I do.

It’s kinda like that.

In order to get your license, you have to show up. That’s the main requirement.

Some people wait thirty years to make it happen because… they’re thinking…

You can think your way into nothingness.

So how about stop thinking and start acting. That is the only way to write the story of your life.

The main requirements to get your license are as follows: you must have four years of experience in your trade, you must have a social security number or an ITIN number, and finally you must be baptized.

The last one, of course, is a joke.

That’s all folks.

Jump in the water.

It’s super cold, and it’s gonna sting a little, but if you wait thirty years you’re going to regret.

And if you’ve already waited thirty years, don’t get down on yourself. Now’s your time. You’re never too old to dream another dream.

If you’re alive, you’re meant for something. You have to believe that.


What People are Saying

“I Passed”

Excellent school! I passed law and electrical exams on my first try and I was more than ready. They also set up my S Corps and helped me through the full process.

Charles Blake

“First Try”

Great school, great staff, highly recommend it if you want to get your contractors license. Passed both trade and law first try. “

Jonathan Felix


This school was perfect for my husband. They work with your schedule to make sure you are able to attend class. He highly recommends this school.

Ruby Allen


The staff was helpful with the odd questions I had throughout the school and very responsive to my phone calls and texts. They helped me from start to finish.”

Kevin Morrison

Open. Now Enrolling.

Order our Online Course — it’s better than diamonds. Because once you get your license and start taking your own jobs, you’ll be able to buy so many diamonds.

You’ll have diamonds on top of your diamonds. And I don’t even know what that means.

Call us if you have any questions.
