With 48 rock-solid years of business, Florida Trade School’s exam preparation classes and courses have helped thousands of Florida contractors pass the Florida Contractor License exams on their very first attempt.

When taking their licensing exam, many professionals are quite surprised at how difficult it is. It’s not that they don’t know their trade, but the exams are mostly about government regulations and standards, which you just don’t pick up in the field. Anyone who has taken these exams can tell you…it’s no walk in the park!

DON’T BE A STATISTIC! 50% of tradespeople who take the State exams for the first time won’t pass. Don’t be in that group. You can depend on Building Trades Education Services (BTES) to give you everything you need to successfully gain, maintain, or renew your State or County License(s).

PREPARE. LEARN. PASS. Build your future today with Building Trades Education Services. Pass your Florida Contractors License Exam!
