Please be advised that the law regarding license renewal and continuing education requirements for special licenses to operate boilers has been amended. Effective September 18, 2008, special license holders under M.G.L. c. 146, § 49, will be required to complete 6 hours of continuing education every 5 years through an institution or organization approved by the Commissioner of the Department of Public Safety ("Department") rather than the current requirement of 30 hours of continuing education every 5 years.

Please note that this change only affects those special license holders under section 49 and does not affect all other individuals licensed to operate boilers who are still required to complete 30 hours of continuing education.
