Minnesota Builders & Remodelers Less Than 6 Weeks to Renew Your License!

March 31st is just a few short weeks away. If you haven’t started your residential builders continued education, now is a good time to start. And you don’t have to waste time or gas driving to a classroom course.  You can take it online from any computer or mobile device. It’s never been more convenient than it is now.

What are the Requirements for Minnesota Contractors?

Residential building contractor and residential remodeler licenses are issued for a two-year term that always ends March 31st.  Half of the licensed contractors renew one year and the other half renew the next year, but everyone is supposed to complete 7 hours per year (14 for the two-year cycle). There must be at least one hour of Energy Code included each cycle as well.  You can even take the same course twice, as long as it’s not in the same renewal cycle.

To help Minnesota contractors fulfill the required continued education, Builders License Training Institute is offering a variety of 7 Hour courses in HD video or fully narrated text that include the required Energy Code.  The courses allow you to begin immediately and come and go as you please.
