Subdivision 1. Standards. The commissioner, in consultation with the council, may adopt standards for continuing education requirements and course approval. The standards must include requirements for continuing education in the implementation of energy codes applicable to buildings and other building codes designed to conserve energy. Except for the course content, the standards must be consistent with the standards established for real estate agents and other professions licensed by the Department of Commerce. At a minimum, the content of one hour of any required continuing education must contain information on lead abatement rules and safe lead abatement procedures.
Subd. 2. Hours. A qualifying person of a licensee must provide proof of completion of seven hours of continuing education per year.

Subd. 3. Accessibility. To the extent possible, the commissioner shall ensure that continuing education courses are offered throughout the state and are easily accessible to all licensees.
Subd. 4. Renewal of accreditation. The commissioner is authorized to establish a procedure for renewal of course accreditation.
