There are many myths surrounding the responsibilities of contractors when it comes to air quality—particularly asbestos and dust regulations. Some contractors incorrectly assume that asbestos regulations do not apply to them because the project falls under city jurisdiction, or that because there was no asbestos, there is no need to file a demo. Other contractors incorrectly think that because they obtained a city permit, they don’t need to worry about county or federal regulations applying. In the state of Arizona, contractors are expected to assume that all building materials are suspect and could contain asbestos. To read more specific air quality regulations in Arizona and what contractors are expected to know about them, visit AZROC.gov.

You’ve probably heard a few of the basic study tips: get plenty of sleep, prepare in advance, and so on. But some of the latest research has helped identify some specific study techniques that are proven to help increase the effectiveness of studying. Learn what works for you by reading these study tips that will increase your chance of success on your upcoming AZ contractor exam.
Study In Different Places
Try to study for your contractor license test in a different location each time, even if it just means choosing a different seat at your favorite coffee shop or library. Being in a new place each time you review the same material reduces the likelihood that you will forget it.
Study Right Before Bed
The brain strengthens new memories during sleep. If you review new information for your contractor license exam right before going to sleep, there’s a good chance that this information will be reinforced while you rest up.
Write It Out, Read It Back
Research shows we are more likely to remember something if we write it out by hand than if we type it. Simply recopying notes on a different sheet of paper and then reading your notes aloud, so your brain can store it both by seeing it and hearing it, can help you prepare for the test.
Find a Study Group
If you sign up for an Arizona contractor exam test preparation course, you’ll be more likely to meet others who are studying for the same exam. If you benefit from teamwork, meet up with a few other studious people and review. Just be sure to do some studying in between each group session, too.
If you are committed to passing your contractor license exam, sign up for test preparation with Arizona Contractor License Center, where we have a 98 percent pass rate, and a No Pass – No Pay Guarantee. We have been serving Arizona contractors since 1972, offering test preparation and even company setup services. Call us at (888) 738-3175 or visit our website for more information.

Contractor licensing in the state of Arizona has many facets, so it can be confusing to understand which rules and policies apply to you or your business. Fortunately, Arizona Contractor License Center is here to help. Read this article for answers to some common questions about obtaining an AZ contractor license.
Who Is Eligible to Apply for a Contractor License?
A business that consists of a sole proprietorship, a partnership, a limited liability company (LLC), or a corporation is eligible to apply for a contractor license as long as they have a regularly employed person with the requisite skills, knowledge, and experience who serves as the qualifying individual. An LLC or corporation must be registered and in good standing with the Arizona Corporation Commission before submitting a contractor license application.
Who Is Required to Hold a Contractor License?
A business that contracts or offers to contract to built, repair, alter, add to, subtract from, move, improve, wreck, or demolish a structure, development, or improvement must be a licensed contractor. This includes work involving the erection of scaffolding, connections to utility service lines, sewer lines, and metering devices.
What Does the Contractor Exam Consist Of?
All candidates for a contractor license must take the Business Management Examination, which tests knowledge about state and federal laws, construction project management, and business and financial management. Some license classifications require passing a specific trade exam as well.
How Much Experience Is Required for a Contractor License?
The amount of experience credits required to apply for a contractor license depends on the specific classification for which you are applying. Credit is given for experience as a journeyman, foreman, or contractor. It is also possible to substitute education, apprenticeship training, or technical training for the required experience.

In the state of Arizona, applicants for contract licensure must submit a verified application provided by the Registrar of Contractors. Within 40 days of receipt, the Registrar will review the application to ensure that it is complete, and notify the applicant accordingly. If the application is incomplete, the applicant will have 30 days from the receipt of the notice of deficiencies to supply the deficient information or request an extension. If the applicant passes this administrative completeness review, a substantive review of the applicant’s qualifications will take place. The agency will grant, deny, or mail a notice of deficiencies within 20 days after the administrative completeness review expires. In total the process can take up to 60 days.
