The Virginia regulations section includes both the rules from the Virginia Board for Contractors and the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code. Understanding the rules and regulations that govern contracting in Virginia will help keep you in compliance so that you can run a successful business.
There are many different facets of knowledge necessary to run a contracting business, and this information will take up a good chunk of the course. The management of a company is split into sections; for example, organizational and financial management are covered in separate sections to better understand each. Learning how to create and manage a well-run contracting business will lessen problems in the long run and give your company a good reputation, saving you both time and money.
General information includes the topics of estimating, bidding, contracts, and liens, among others. You may think this information is unnecessary, or that you already know and understand the contracting industry, but refreshing your memory will assist you in the PSI exam and your daily work. You may even learn something you didn't know before.
With the RBC specialty you can cut into walls, tear them down or move them. You can expand the footprint of a floor plan or build additions of any size. The RBC allows you to work on any part of the dwelling, from the foundation to the roof.
