Residential building contractor and residential remodeler licensees in Minnesota are required to complete 14 hours of Department of Labor and Industry-approved continuing education. Each license is active for a 2-year period that always ends on March 31. Included in the 14 credit hours, during each reporting period, every licensee must complete and report one hour of CE relating to energy codes or energy conservation measures applicable to residential buildings and one hour of business management. To learn more about license renewal, visit our MN Continuing Education Requirements page.
NOTICE: All in-person classes originally scheduled January-March 2021 have been CANCELLED in order to follow the state of Minnesota's ordinance and ensure student and instructor safety. Our Residential Contractor/Remodeler Update course can now be taken in two formats: OnDemand or Live Online. The OnDemand course offers the convenience of a recorded video allowing you to study when and where you want. The Live Online course, much like an in-person classroom, allows you to select a course date/time and engage with your instructor and peers in our live online classroom.
