General Contractor License Guide is a library of resources to help people interested in skilled trades get started and advance in their careers.
The site was founded in 2015 by Ryan Davis following 20 years as a licensed general contractor in Jensen Beach, Florida.
He’s experienced first-hand the licensing challenges that general contractors face; from understanding which license to apply for through to continuing education requirements, insurance requirements and everything in between.
His goal with GCLG is to share these experiences and publish approachable guidance with fellow contractors.
Since then, the website has grown into much more. Not only do we provide the most complete guides on how to become a general contractor, but now we offer free state-by-state license guides for multiple skilled trades.
Whether you are interested in becoming a general contractor, an electrician, a plumber, an HVAC technician, a welder, or a professional handyman, you’ve come to the right place!
In 2023, the website was acquired by career portal operator Specialist Job Boards and we continue on with Ryan’s mission.
We are constantly adding new articles that will help you progress in your chosen field and we update our license guides often.
If you need any help, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
