|Our Track Record is Unbeatable
No matter what your needs, or what your budget, we have the most reliable program anywhere. Contractors State License School (CSLS) isn't just the biggest school in the state, but also the industry leader for more than 25 years. That's why we guarantee the success of every student, every time.
|The Best Instruction Money Can Buy
From instructors with real-world experience to online and home study courses that are constantly updated, CSLS offers the very best in construction industry education. If you want teachers and learning aids that actually make the material easier, look no further.
|We Offer a Real Money-Back Guarantee
While a lot of other schools say you can get your money back, the fine print in their agreement says something else (usually that you lose the right to a refund once you open your course materials). Our promise is simple: You'll pass your test or get your money back. It's that simple! See details
|CSLS Uses a Teaching Method You Won't Find Elsewhere
All of our study materials are based on the "Mizener Method," which was developed by our founder and is the key to our home study materials, which have been used by tens of thousands of students.
|Individual Attention and Support
No two students are the same, and we all have different goals, backgrounds, and learning styles. At CSLS, our focus is always on you as a student, not a number. From small, personal classes to one-on-one customer service, we’ll make sure you get the attention and support you need.
|Live Crash Courses and Material Reviews
Whether you need to prepare for your exam in a hurry, or just brush up on what you've learned before you actually take your test, CSLS offers regular "crash courses" to help you review everything you need to know at the last minute.
|Computerized Practice Testing
When our students show up to test, they know they're ready. That's because each of our campuses is equipped with computers that look and work just like the ones the state uses for their tests, so you can get familiar with every aspect of your exam before the big day.
|99% of Our Students Pass On the First Try
Although there are a few other schools around the state who boast pass rates of 90%, or even 95%, those statistics include students who take the test several times. If you want the best shot at becoming a licensed contractor – without taking your test again and again – CSLS should be your first choice. We've helped more than 125,000 other students, and we can help you, too.
Often, improving your business as a California licensed contractor doesn’t take a huge effort or a mental breakthrough; it’s usually just a matter of learning a few new tricks and putting them into practice.
For that reason, we want to share one of those tips with you today – something that can make a big difference to you and your clients, and typically takes less than 30 minutes: put together a list of “trusted vendors” that you can share with clients and colleagues.
Your list should be filled with other contractors and construction companies that you know do great work. Chances are, you’ve probably come across lots of professionals during the course of your career. Those relationships can save other people a lot of time that would have been spent evaluating different contractors. And of course, your colleagues are in a better position if they get lots of referrals.
