What You Need To Know About Continuing Ed For Contractors

Construction Supervisors License Continuing Education Requirements:
For license renewals July 1, 2013 and after, you WILL need to provide proof of continuing education (credit hours) at the time of renewal in order to be granted a renewed license.
Note that taking any courses now will “count” toward the first time you need to provide these credits. Courses must be pre-approved for credits and will indicate that when you sign up and attend.

How Many Credits/Hours?
Construction Supervisors License/ “Unrestricted”: 12.0 Hours*
The One and Two Family Dwelling (“Restricted”) License: 10.0 Hours*
The Specialty Licenses: 6.0 Hours*
*Every Two Years at Renewal

What Categories?
Of the required hours, there are five mandatory topics, with a minimum of one hour required in each:
Code Review
Workplace Safety
Business Practices
Energy (except Demolition Specialty License)
Lead-Safe Practices (only first renewal cycle)

To earn the required credits (CEUs), licensees must take courses that have been pre-approved by the state. The Board of Building Regulations and Standards (BBRS) deems that approved courses must “impart appropriate and related knowledge in the regulated industries.” Students must attend classes in their entirety in order to receive the approved credits.
