If you are adequately prepared, the Arizona contractor license exam will be fairly straightforward. The exam consists of two parts: the business management exam and the specific trade exam. The business management exam is mandatory for a contractor license. Depending on the license classification you are seeking, you may also need to pass a trade exam. The business management portion will ask you questions on federal laws, state laws, construction project management, business management, and financial management. The trade exam will ask you questions about the specific trade for which you hope to attain licensure. To see if you are required to pass a trade exam, visit AZROC.gov.

General contractors need to make a list of necessary permits, labor requirements, and materials, and determine how much they will cost to obtain. Contractors must also figure out the equipment that will be needed and whether the equipment should be purchased or leased. Based on these estimates, the contractor will create a budget and outline a timetable that spells out when certain phases of the project will be completed.
Working with People
Contractors often discuss the details of a project with architects, engineers, electricians, or other professional construction specialists on a daily basis. Many contractor jobs require you to keep up direct contact with the client, updating him or her on the progress of the project as well as any issues that need to be fixed. General contractors will also hire and train employees for a project.
Contractors must ensure that the all laws and regulations applicable to the construction project are followed. As a contractor, you will need to be familiar with labor laws, material bans, and safety regulations for various jobs—and you will have to make sure that your employees comply with them.

Getting a contractor’s license can pave the way for a new career as a contractor. However, before a person can get a contractor’s license, he needs to have the right level of experience. Typically, individuals interested in obtaining licensure must have at least four years’ experience working as a journeyman or construction supervisor. While education is not required as a prerequisite for getting a contracting license, it can help a person become licensed in some cases—especially if the education is directly applicable to the license being applied for. If a person has educational credits of some kind, documentation—such as college transcripts—need to be provided to licensers.
