Experienced builders coordinate, work, and oversee projects. They’re responsible to meet industry and government regulations as well as the clients’ requirements. Getting a Michigan builders license helps you establish credibility with your customers and allows you to make a higher earning potential in the long run! As a licensed builder, you will become an essential part in a homeowner’s process. You will help your clients from start to finish as well as adding value to their home and additional experience to your career, one project at a time.

At the Michigan Institute of Real Estate, we know what it takes to have a successful career as a builder. To obtain your Michigan builders license, you are required to take 60 hours of Builders Prelicensing Education. Our course is split into two 30 hour, separate courses; Builder 1 and Builder 2. Once you have finished taking the course, you will receive your certificates of completion which you will then need to send into the State of Michigan. After the process takes place, you will then be able to register through PSI Examination Services for your state administered exam. To accommodate all individuals, we offer the Michigan Builder’s License Course in a classroom, online, or as a home study. Our instructors are all licensed Michigan Builders who offer a wealth of information and experience to aid in your success!
