NEWS AND UPDATES
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.
License renewal extension
The renewal date for licenses that were due to renew between April 1, 2020 and Dec. 1, 2020 is extended to
Jan. 15, 2021.

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.
