Mike's Prelicensing

Please refer to the VA’s NEW RULE (since 2012) that requires you to pass technical Specialty Exam – all Class A, B and C licensing.

> Class-C Package Fee: $550 (both Home Improvement exam prep and mandatory 8-hour Prelicensing class) .    This price is valid only one payment, before start any of above class.  You have 3 months keep coming for the Home Improvement exam prep with NO further charges (Refer to VA HIC exam prep for the class schedule).

The Pre-licensing Certificate will be issued in the name of an individual, not the company.  Your license application form asking the company name, if you want the license issued under your company name.

When Ace Tech Institute (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.
