How Do I Become a Professional Contractor?

Q: I was interested in becoming a residential contractor, and I thought Extreme How-To may have some information on pointing me in the right direction.

A: So, you want to go pro. Well, you’ll certainly need the education to do that. A good place to start would be American Contractors Exam Services. The company offers exam seminars that cover the types of questions and concepts you’ll find on contractor licensing exams for commercial and residential construction, electrical, mechanical, plumbing and HVAC. You can learn the basics of estimating, building codes and licensing laws in your state. It’s also a great source for books and other helpful resources. Visit ACES at or call 1-800-992-1910.
