Lock and Security Equipment Contractors.

Lock and security equipment contractors are really good at doing lock and equipment security types of things.

And I’m assuming that’s you.

Because why else would you be here?

And if that is you, we can help you get your license.

It’s what we do.



How To Get Your C-28 Contractors License

Hey, hey, hey.

It’s not that hard to get your license, and it’s also kinda hard.

But all things worth doing are hard.

Are they not?

You’re probably busy doing lock stuff, but if you want to get your license you’re going to need to take some time to study — because once you get your license you can unlock your future in a big way.

It’s time to get it done.

What Does It Take To Get Your License?

Lotsa money (just kidding).

Only a few things.

1 – A picture identification of some kind.

2 – A valid SSN number or ITIN number.

3 – Four years of experience doing C28-related things.

Second, you must be over the age of eighteen.

Those are the main things.

And, by the way, that four years of experience needs to be within the last ten years.

What Else Do You Need?

Lotsa money (joking, again).

It doesn’t cost too much to get your license.

Not in comparison to how much you’ll be able to make once you have your license and your own business.

But For Reals, What Else Do You Need?

Okay, for reals, you need to pass two tests with the state of California.

Here’s how it goes.

You submit an application to the CSLB (Contractors State License Board) to get your license. They get back to you and adminster two tests.

One test covers questions related to the law (construction law for all the trades).

And the other test covers your trade (C28) specifically.

Both tests are hard.

The law test is usually harder for contractors.

But here’s the thing:

Call us if you’re tired of this article (or falling asleep, or you need advice, or you just woke up from a nap, or you accidentally fell into a ditch, or you purposely fell into a ditch).

How Much Does It Cost?

Finally, we answer one of your main questions.

We have different pricing options — anywhere from $499 to $999.

Schooling aside, you’ll have to pay the state to be able to take the tests. They charge $530

There are a few small additional fees, but we’ll talk more about those in class.

At the end of it, the entire cost will probably end up around $2,000.

Which seems like a lot — but it is a small price to pay for starting the next phase of your professional career — starting your own business and taking all the jobs you can get. Pursuing one of the greatest things to pursue — your dreams.

Financial freedom.

How Much Time Does It Take?

Depends on how fast you are (at running, mostly).

You can get it done in anywhere from four weeks to eight weeks, typically.

It all depends on you.

Again, you can always call us for more info or to get started.

Or, you can just get started.

How Do I Prove My Experience?

Easy as lemon pie and lock and security equipment:

You must get one person (boss or coworker or even a client) to sign off on your application saying that you have the necessary experience.

Simple as that.

Call us.
