The purpose of this section is to establish standards for residential building contractor continuing education.
A qualifying person of a licensee must provide proof of completion of 14 hours of continuing education per two-year licensure period.
Credit may not be earned if the licensee has previously obtained credit for the same course as either a student or instructor during the same licensing period.
(a) Each licensee must, during each continuing education reporting period, complete and report one hour of continuing education relating to energy codes or energy conservation measures applicable to residential buildings and one hour of business management strategies applicable to residential construction businesses.
(b) Immediately following the adoption date of a new residential code, the commissioner may prescribe that up to seven of the required 14 hours of continuing education credit per licensure period include education hours specifically designated to instruct licensees on new or existing State Building Code provisions.
