Two New Contractor Support Programs for already Licensed Contractors!

1. NEW - Business Workshop   
We are now offering a Business Workshop for the New Contractor OR the Experienced Contractor who needs to get their Business and all the paperwork organized to actually run Legally, or to "tune it up." We'll go over Bidding, Payroll & Workers Comp, and the required Contracts and Legal Documents, etc., to make sure you are protected and not missing any critical regulations.  If you have forgotten some of the Laws that are in place, we are offering a convenient way to "be safe rather than sorry." The fee for the Business Workshop is only $195.00 for Existing Contractor Clients (Spouse/Significant Other $59.00) and $295.00 for Other Licensed Contractors.
2. NEW - Licensed Contractor Law Refresher Class 
We are also now offering a "Law Refresher Course" for any currently Licensed Contractors.  The reason for the Refresher Class is to give you an opportunity to update your knowledge on the Contractor’s License Laws and the Business and Professions Code regulations that guide Contractors in California.  Many Contractors forget some of the Laws that are in place, and with the CSLB actively and aggressively investigating work practices (especially Written Contracts and Employment Regulations), we are offering a way to "get up to date." The fee for this limited availability class is only $295 for existing Contractor Clients and $395 for Other Licensed Contractors.
