Plumbing Contractor Licensing, Education & Exam Prep

A license is required in Florida to bid on any Plumbing project. The plumbing exam is unique in that it requires an isometric portion. The General Trade Knowledge examination will be administered in two sessions. The morning session will consist of 45 equally weighted questions and 5 isometric drawings. The isometric drawings will be worth 10 points each. The afternoon session will consist of 65 equally weighted questions. Your scores for the morning and afternoon sessions will be combined to determine your total score for this examination.

We have online exam prep, books for the exam, and additional services to help you obtain your license. All our training is offered in an online self-paced format. Our exam prep is designed to help you pass your test the first time, and is backed with our no pass, no pay policy. Our courses are available from almost any device, any time. We hope that you will make RocketCert your home to help you obtain your Florida Plumbing Contractor's License.
