At Building Trades Education Services (BTES), our mission is to prepare you to pass your Florida state or county contractors exam and to provide you with quality, continuing education required to maintain you license.

BTES helps people become full-fledged contractors. Over the years, we’ve developed focused teaching methods which have contributed to a 95%+ success rate. Students who enroll in our licensing exam prep school are taught by instructors who take the time to teach you how to teach yourself. We give you the tools and knowledge you need to take your contractor exams with confidence.

By fully immersing yourself into our Contractor’s Licensing Exam courses, you’ll gain confidence, test-taking skills, and the knowledge required so that you WILL pass the state exam. When you sign up for our live exam prep courses, you can expect to work with teachers who create a curriculum based on proven methods of finding obscure information in obscure places within the trade text books required for your state/county exam. Trade knowledge, unfortunately, is a very minuscule part of the process.
