The required number of hours will be reduced to 8 hours for contractors that have been continuously licensed as a residential contractor for the entire 6-years period immediately preceding the scheduled expiration date. The required number of hours remains the same for contractors that have been licensed as a residential contractor less than 6 years.

How much RCE is required?

Beginning January 1, 2014: Contractors* that have been licensed as a residential contractor for 6 or more years (without a license lapse exceeding 24 months) will require 8 hours of residential continuing education during the 2-year licensing period:

COMMERCIAL: How much education do I need?

Education requirements for commercial contractors are based on your endorsement and how many key employees your business had on the date your license was last issued or renewed. When you renew, you will be asked to certify that you met the requirements.

Level 1 commercial general or specialty contractors need:

  • 5 or more key employees: 80 hours
  • 4 key employees: 64 hours
  • 3 key employees: 48 hours
  • 2 key employees: 32 hours
  • 1 key employee: 16 hours

Level 2 commercial general or specialty contractors need: 32 hours of education.

Example: A contractor’s license (CGC1) renews on July 1, 2014. Two years earlier, on July 1, 2012 (the date of the previous renewal) the contractor had three key employees. The contractor needs 48 hours to renew.

Who are key employees?A key employee is an owner or employee who is one of the following:

  • Corporate officer
  • Manager
  • Superintendent
  • Foreperson
  • Lead person
  • Any other person who supervises construction activities

Who can take classes?

One key employee or multiple key employees can complete class requirements.

What courses qualify?

Commercial contractors can take a variety of courses on construction methods or business practices to meet their continuing education requirements. The CCB does not need to pre-approve courses.

Who can offer courses?

The CCB does not approve individual education providers for commercial continuing education. By law, providers can be:

  • Community colleges, colleges, universities
  • Trade schools
  • Trade or business associations*
  • Professional societies
  • Private companies
  • Public agencies
  • In-house training

*This can include workshops and trainings held at trade shows.

Do I need to report my education?

Keep a record of all the education completed. When you renew your license, you must certify on the renewal form that you completed requirements. The CCB may audit your records.

Licensed for commercial and residential?

If you are licensed for both commercial and residential work, you must fulfill requirements for the residential continuing education requirement and the commercial requirement. However, the hours taken for the residential obligation apply to the commercial requirements.
