Pre-Licensure Training and the CCB Exam (English) - Accelerated Evening Edition

Thu 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM
4 sessions ending Thu, Jul 20
Topic: Start-up Assistance

This class is full. Our next class in English will be in September

Prepare for the Construction Contractors Board (CCB) exam with hands on practice and instruction. This course is offered by the Small Business Development Center at Clackamas Community College.

Our July class is going to be an accelerated evening class. We are hoping this makes the class more accessible for people who cannot or do not want to take off work in order to complete the training and exam. It will be a mix of watching videos on your own time, then coming together with the instructor for review, and taking the exam. We call this style a flipped classroom (or for Stranger Things fans, the "upside down" classroom). Here's how it works:

We divide the 14 Chapters of the NASCLA manual into 4 Lessons. After a short Orientation on Thursday, July 6, we meet on Zoom four times (7/10, 7/13, 7/17, 7/20). Before each meeting, you will watch the videos for that Lesson (and doing the practice quizzes). Then, at each meeting, we review the Lesson with the instructor (on Zoom), followed by that portion of the official exam (about 20 questions per exam). Classes are 3-4 days apart, so you'll have 2-3 full days to watch the videos (about 2 to 3 hours of videos per class), and take the practice exams.

After successful completion of the class, you will earn your "CCB Exam Certificate" showing that you've passed the official CCB Exam. After the class, you will meet with an experienced and professional business advisor. They will help you submit your CCB application promptly and correctly.
