As a Broward County licensed General Building Contractor, Specialty Building Contractor or Engineer/Specialty Engineering Contractor, you are required to complete four (4) hours of continuing education each renewal cycle by attending the following programs or courses:
1. Broward County Code of Ordinances, Chapter 9: Contractors (1 hour)
2. Workplace Safety (1 hour)
3. Worker’s Compensation (1 hour)
4. Business Practices (1 hour)
If your license status is inactive, and has been inactive for more than one (1) year, you are not required to complete these continuing education requirements. Additionally, if your license status is inactive for less than one (1) year, and you want to renew in the inactive status, you are not required to complete these continuing education requirements.
State registered contractors are required to only complete the one (1) hour course pertaining to “Broward County Code of Ordinances, Chapter 9: Contractors” in addition to the continuing education requirements of Chapter 489 of the Florida State Statutes as a condition of renewal.
Failure to complete continuing education hours will result in your license being placed in inactive status. Only course hours taken during the 2-year renewal cycle qualify towards fulfilling the required hours. You may not carry over hours to or from another cycle. If you hold more than one license, you are only required to complete the continuing education requirements once (total 4 hours) during each renewal cycle.
