The Happy Carpenter is unhappy, because he has to spend five hours and 50 minutes online to pass a course for his Florida general contractor’s license. Answering the questions is the easy part. The trick is to do it slowly.
1.) You must spend at least 5 hours and 50 minutes of actual time on-line to get 7 hours of credit. Furthermore,
2.) You must be active on the site. If you’re inactive for more than 10 or 15 minutes (honestly, who can remember this kind of stuff?) you’re timed out.
3.) If you’re timed out, then the time you put in up to that point is erased and you have to start over!
The content of the course bears no relationship to the skills contractors actually use, he adds.
