What Do I Need?

All individuals or business entities intending to engage in construction work in Arizona must obtain a state issued contractor license. One individual must be selected to act as the qualifier for the license, which requires the individual to pass the necessary tests and have the hands on experience prior to applying for the license. Each license requires a Business Management (CBME) exam to be passed, and most licenses require a trade specific exam also. Each license requires a number of year(s) of verifiable experience and projects.
