How To Get Your General Engineering Contractors License

Also known as the General A License.

Contractor License School (that’s us!) is proud to offer a General Engineering Contractor License course for the state of California.

Requirements for License

In order to obtain a contractor license as a general engineering contractor in the state of California, one must have four years of experience in the trade at a journeyman level. If you have 4 years of experience — only two years with a college degree — you are qualified to obtain your license.

And as a Contractor License school, we’re qualified to walk you through the licensing process.

If you have the 4 years of experience now is the time to change your life, be your own boss, and reach your financial potential. Your General Engineering Contractor License is waiting for you.

We’re here to help.
