MA CSL Exam Prep

If you plan to take a new job overseeing a construction project, your employer has probably required you to obtain a Massachusetts Construction Supervisor License (MA CSL). The position, which is often just below the construction manager, requires you to supervise certain workers on construction projects or phases of projects, which include one-to-two family homes and/or appurtenant structures of any size, one-to-four family owner-occupied homes, and manufactured buildings, or structures with 35,00 cubic feet of enclosed space.

Construction specialists who need to obtain this licensure often have a few important questions:

  • What is the MA CSL exam, what happens upon completion, and how long is it valid?
  • Are there any prerequisites needed to take the exam?
  • What exam preparation is needed to complete certification in time to begin the targeted project?

What Is the MA CSL Exam and Who Needs to Take It?

The MA unrestricted CSL exam is an open book test consisting of 75 questions that you must complete in three hours. Candidates who earn a score of 70% or higher will receive a passing grade. At that point, you can pay the $150 fee to obtain your license.

There are two main prerequisites for professionals who want to take the MA CSL exam:

  • Must be 18 years or older.
  • Must have a minimum of three years of experience (education counts toward experience).
