Virginia Contractor’s Mandatory 8-hour Pre-licensing Education 

The following information pertains to the VA DPOR Board’s approved 8-hour Pre-license education class.

Contractors applying for initial licensure must successfully complete an 8-hour business class approved by the VA Board for Contractors.

Please refer to the VA’s NEW RULE (since 2012) that requires you to pass technical Specialty Exam.

The Pre-licensing (or Remedial) Certificate will be issued in the name of an individual, not the company.   When Ace tech (ATI) submits the completion of education record of an individual to VA DPOR, the certificate is placed on the individual’s records.  The individual then should be properly associated with the company in DPOR’s computer database. 


The cost of the course is $79 (Spring Special). 

–      You will learn the steps for contractor licensing, basic business running information, and PSI exam preparation information in detail.

–      Ace Tech will report your Pre-Licensing class completion to VA DPOR within 3 business days

–      All required personal information will be sent to the Virginia Board of Contractors for approval and recording of your certificate.

You will need your completion certificate print upon successful completion of class.

You may complete at your own pace over the next 30 days.  You have unlimited access to the course during the 30 days after registration to complete the course.

We encourage you to download/print the relevant information provided in your course free of charge.
