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:

  1. 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. We SAVE You Time

Our RBC Specialty Exam Prep Course includes Pre-Highlighted and Tabbed Textbooks.

Online Self-Navigated Courses charge extra for your books, and then you are left having to highlight them on your own. AVAC does this work for you, so class time can be spent becoming familiar with the texts, and learning how to study for the exam using our proven method.

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.
