Continuing Education Credits for Massachusetts Contractors

Continuing Education is now being phased in as a requirement for future renewal of the Construction Supervisors License. These requirements start with licenses renewed or issued after July 1, 2011.

Here is some information about the specifics of these new requirements:

  • Licensees who renew a license or are issued a first-time license on or after July 1, 2011 shall be expected to fully comply with education requirements following a full two-year cycle or elongated first-time license cycle (a first-time license cycle may extend beyond two years depending on the licensees birth date).
  • Licensees who renew or are issued a first-time license prior to July 1, 2011 will be on a different schedule.

A licensed construction supervisor must acquire a certain number of continuing education hours each 2 year renewal period based upon these license categories:

  • Unrestricted Construction Supervisors License:  12 Hours
  • Restricted Construction Supervisors License:  10 Hours
  • Specialty Construction Supervisors License:  6 Hours
    (Masonry, Roofing, Windows / Siding, Demolition, Burning Fuel, Insulation)

Required topics to attend for a minimum of one hour each include Code Review,  Workplace Safety,  Business Practices, Energy, and Lead-Safe Practices.

You can view the proposed regulations in their entirety here. For just the continuing education criterion, you can view just that section as a PDF here: Regulation 110.5.4 Continuing Education

Many local builders associations such as BAGB and NARI will be offering many future opportunities for earning continuing Education Credits. National Lumber will also be sponsoring several upcoming Continuing Education classes. See our Events page to stay up to date on continuing education classes sponsored by National Lumber.
