Don’t be caught by surprise!
The time when licensed construction supervisors will need to demonstrate compliance with continuing education requirements is fast approaching. Any person with a license expiration date of July 1, 2013 or after will need to comply with continuing education requirements. A licensed construction supervisor must acquire a certain number of continuing education hours each 2 year renewal period based upon license category.
- Unrestricted Construction Supervisors (identified as Construction Supervisor License on the license Card) must attain at least 12 hours of continuing education credit;
- Restricted Construction Supervisors (identified as 1 and 2 Family License on the license card) must acquire at least 10 hours; and
- Specialty Construction Supervisors must acquire at least 6 hours of credit.
Specialty categories include the following license types:
- Windows / Siding;
- Solid Fuel Burning; and
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, needs only to achieve the requisite 6 hours of continuing education credit. However, please remember that each license category requires certain content to be covered during trainings, such as workplace safety and lead safe practices.
Please refer to the regulations for detailed requirements and the DPS website for approved course coordinators and courses of instruction .
