Contractors State License Center, based in Burbank, California, is pleased to announce that they are offering contractors license classes in Los Angeles. The license preparation course is most suitable for those who have completed contractor training in Southern California.
The in-school program conducted by Contractors the State License Center consists of six classes covering the trade and relevant law. The course is structured so one only has to attend classes for two hours once a week, with convenient evening and weekend class times. The center allows for flexible scheduling and class format as well, which allows an individual to adjust their schedule for different days each week. Anyone sitting the course will have to come to class for six weeks, then work with the practice exams and study materials as much as they need to prepare for the final test. They may also repeat a class if they missed it the first time or simply wish to take it again and refresh their knowledge.
The center is also offering a home study program where students can purchase the books, study guides and practice exams to prepare for their test by studying the material at home. However, the center recommends that, unless one lives too far away, it is best to enroll and attend the classes to maximize the chance of passing the test in the first round. The center’s experience with this contractors license school in Los Angeles has shown that it has proven much harder for people to study effectively at home than it is for them to learn in a classroom environment. With all the distractions at home, such as children, spouses and the television (for example), it can be difficult to sustain a conducive environment for retaining and learning the material. Also, a home study program tends to overload a person with more information to memorize. In comparison, a classroom environment helps a person understand the concept as opposed to just memorizing it.
The preparation course conducted by the Contractors State License Center has proven successful in many ways. First, it focuses entirely on the exam and the information and techniques needed to help a candidate pass the first time. Through the classes and interactive practice tests, a candidate can learn exactly what they need to know to qualify for their licence. To quote the center’s website, “That’s why our success rate is so high and we can make this guarantee.”
It is an unfortunate reality that many first-time applicants fail to complete their state application properly, especially when it comes to documenting their work experience. This causes the application to be returned — and results in more delays. The Contractors State License Center can help a candidate get started by typing the application, making sure all information is complete and submitting the candidate’s application to the Contractors Board to ensure the soonest possible test date available.
The course is also conducted in real classrooms, with live instructions. Many institutes claim that students do not need to attend class and can study from home. Experience has taught the Contractors State License Center that, while this sounds convenient, it does not work for many individuals as they do not truly learn the material. As a student at the center, one receives classroom lectures alongside instruction from a certified instructor/licensed contractor who will explain and simplify the material for candidates and answer all questions. The center also provides easy reading guides for construction law and business, trade, math, practice exams, videos, audio tapes and CDs.
The center also provides the most up to date current practice exams. Practice tests play a critical role in a candidate’s ability to take the state exam. Many other home study programs and schools tend to supply the same recycled questions, giving a candidate less margin for error to get a passing score. As the center’s website explains, “Remember, test questions can and do change frequently — that’s why we have a full time contractor on staff who is continually researching the test requirements and updating our materials.” A candidate will take the practice tests on computers designed to simulate the format and questions they will see on the actual test. Therefore, when they do face the final exam, they may feel confident in addition to being well prepared.
The two hours a week schedule allows candidates to fit in their test preparation around their existing occupation and other commitments. The center took these factors into account when originally implementing this particular structure, and this means that flexible scheduling is a possibility for all candidates. This ensures that all candidates will be able to attend every lecture and have the opportunity to go through the study materials and practice tests.
