There are three different classifications that the Nevada State Contractors Board issues licenses for.
Class “A” is for a General Engineering Contractor, which is in connection with fixed work requiring specialized engineering and knowledge and skill. Class “B” is for a General Building Contractor, which is in connection with the construction or remodeling of buildings or structures for the support, shelter and enclosure of persons, animals, or other movable property of any kind. Class “C” is for a Specialty Contractor. Within this class, there are 36 separate primary classifications for contractors whose construction may require special skills.
As a contractor, you can obtain a license in any of the specialty classifications you are qualified for. A separate license is required for each primary classification and multiple sub classifications within the same primary classification can be combined under one license. A full list of class “C” classifications is available online at Nevada State Contractors Board but some of which include: carpentry, maintenance and minor repairs; painting and decorating; concrete contracting; elevation and conveyance and many more.
