At this time we do not provide Contractor training. There are many sources for the required 14 hours of Continuing Education necessary to renew your EF, EG or EC License.
There are Electrical and Contractor Schools that provide the License specific 14 hour course for your renewal as well as approved training from many equipment Distributors and manufacturers in the industry. Much of the Manufacturer training is offered FREE to their customers.
To get State credit for a class, make sure the training has a course number from the Florida ECLB as Alarm or Electrical Contractor License Holder Continuing Education and that they electronically report your course completion to the Florida ECLB.
If you are a supplier with appropriate Training needs, we can deliver or sponsor your product training and handle the reporting of Student CEs. Contact us to discuss your needs.

GETTING A FLORIDA ALARM CONTRACTORS LICENSE
If you want to get a Florida Alarm Contractor I or II License the first step would be to determine if you have the required experience to qualify. The best way to do that is to get the application and fill it out. This will get you started collecting the certificates and documents you need to verify your experience and your financial ability to operate an Alarm Contracting Company. Once the application is completed you can file it with the State of Florida and get scheduled for the State Test. To get started with the process get the application form by clicking Alarm Contractor I (Burg and Fire) or Alarm Contractor II (Burg Only) to go to the Contractor License application page on the State of Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation web site.
Once you know you can meet the experience and financial requirements check out the EXAMINATION information from the State and start preparing for the exam.
If you complete the application you probably have the experience to pass the Alarm part of the exam but the business/finance section is where many applicants fail the test. I strongly recommend that before you take the State Exam you attend a prep course that covers the Business/Financial parts of the exam. This will probably double your chance of passing on the first sitting. I recommend the Exam Prep training from Mike Holt Enterprises. It will give you the information you need to pass the Business part of the State Exam. Click the button below for info on Mike Holt Enterprises exam prep courses.
