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 Code/Energy Efficient Building 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. 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.
