Do I need to complete continuing education to renew my Massachusetts license?

Any construction supervisor or CSL with an license expiration date of July 1, 2013 or after will need to comply with the continuing education requirements. A licensed construction supervisor must complete continuing education every 2 years in order to renew their license.

  • Unrestricted Construction Supervisors (identified as Construction Supervisor License on the license card) must complete at least 12 hours of approved continuing education requirements.
  • Restricted Construction Supervisors (identified as 1 and 2 Family License on the license card) must complete at least 10 hours of approved continuing education.
  • Specialty Construction Supervisors must complete at least 6 hours of approved continuing education. Specialty categories include:
    • Masonry Roofing
    • Windows
    • Siding
    • Demolition
    • Solid Fuel Burning
    • Insulation

The maximum number of hours required for any given licensee is 12 hours, regardless of how many categories appear on the license card. A person who is licensed in a specialty category, whether one, two or all six, only needs 6 hours of approved continuing education credit.
