License continuing education


Continuing education course flexibility

Given the concerns about in-person courses during social distancing, we wanted to share an existing tool that allows approved CE courses to be taught online.

If you have been approved to provide a course in-person you may provide that course via video conferencing or other online platform without re-applying. The course being taught online must contain the same content as the approved in-person course, follow the same time estimates as the in-person course and be taught by an approved instructor.

CPR classes require in person training and cannot be taught online.

Continuing education requirements

Continuing education is required to renew most licenses.

During each three-year license cycle, either 24, 16, eight, four, or zero hours of continuing education, depending on specialty (i.e. electrical, plumbing, or boiler and pressure vessel) is required. Continuing education classes can be taken any time during a renewal cycle.

Check your credits

Check your license record to identify the number of credits and type of credits you need to complete.

Find an approved course

Only credits from approved courses and providers can be applied to your license.


Expired licenses

If you don't renew your license by the expiration date, your license will fall into the "expired-renewable" status. You are not eligible to work under your license until all the renewal requirements are met, including continuing education.
