The Benefits of
AVAC's Mentorship-Style Courses vs.
Online Self-Navigated Classes
We believe in Mentor-Guided Learning, not self-driven online classes.
Our Instructor-Involved Teaching Style Allows Us To:
Answer YOUR specific questions.
You will have questions! We will have answers!
With AVAC, you have an instructor by your side who is knowledgeable about the
entire process of obtaining your Contractor's License.
2. Ensure YOUR Contractor License Application and
Experience Verification Forms are filled in properly.
The DPOR recently stated that 80% of applications submitted are not correctly filled-in the first time they are received. This can cause a delay of weeks, if not months, in the approval process.
During our 8 Hour Pre-license Class, we take you through your contractor license application line by line,
making sure you get it right the first time.
AVAC has over 10 years experience helping potential contractors through the DPOR approval process. In our class you will benefit from our experience, and we are there in person to answer any questions specific to your situation and licensing needs. You will not get this personalized attention from an online self-guided class or video presentation.
3. Learn from other contractors in class about the real-world
situations you may face in YOUR business.
We're not new to the Contractor's world.
We've been helping Contractors, like you, obtain their Virginia Contractor's Licenses for over 10 years!
We've listened to their experiences in the process of licensing, as well as starting & running their businesses, and we share that insight and knowledge with you.
There are NO QUIZZES or TESTS in our 8 Hour Class.
Online Self-navigated classes force you to pass quizzes and tests in order to
complete your 8 Hour Class requirement, but not with AVAC!
