If you pass the NASCLA Examination for Commercial General Building Contractors, your name will be entered into the NASCLA National Examination Database and you may use this information in other states that accept the NASCLA Examination. The NASCLA Examination Program was designed to assist contractors who need to be licensed in multiple jurisdictions. Contractors who take the examination can access NASCLA’s Examination Database (NED) and request that their results be sent to other jurisdictions that accept the examination, thereby reducing redundant licensing requirements. To access the NASCLA Examination Database (NED), please click visit https://ned.nascla.org.
