CCB Test Preparation for Contractors

Do you want to become a Construction Contractor in Oregon?
Prepare to get your CCB license!

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Starting September 1st, 2016, the CCB's pre-license test will be based on a brand new "NASCLA" manual. If you are interested in an online course, you may start our new online curriculum right away, and you will be able to take the new test as of September 1st.

(Students who enrolled in our previous courses based on the "Prometric" manual should be prepared to take the test before August 31st, 2016. The Central Oregon testing center in Bend is almost fully booked through the end of this month -- you can check local availability as well as other testing locations here. However, you will not be able to schedule your test until you have completed your course.)

Our next live class will be held in Redmond on Friday September 9 & Saturday September 10, 8:00am-5:30pm. Call 541-383-7290 to register or email or register online. This will be our first live class based on the new manual.
