Why Should You Take This 7-Hour Minnesota Business Practices Continuing Education Online Anytime course?

In Minnesota, all building contractors and remodelers who contract with a homeowner to construct or improve dwellings by offering more than one special skill must be licensed. 14 hours of state-approved continuing education is required for every two year licensing cycle to maintain this license. At least one hour of Energy Code must be included for every two-year licensing period. There is no longer a requirement for one hour of lead paint training. That requirement changed to Energy Code several years ago.

This 7-Hour Minnesota Business Practices Continuing Education Online Anytime course is approved by the State of Minnesota and fulfills 7 credit hours of continued education toward the Minnesota Builders license, Contractors license or Manufactured Home Installer license. This is the fastest and most convenient method of completing your Minnesota builders and remodelers continued education.

 

Please Note:  Half of the builders and remodelers in Minnesota must renew each year by March 31st. The State of Minnesota will not allow you to take the same course twice within a 2 year cycle. If you have specific questions about your Minnesota Builders Licesne, they should be directed to the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry at 651-284-5012

Important:  This course is approved for Residential Builders, Home Installers and Building Officials. You will have access to this course for one year, although we will extend that time if needed.
