What exactly is the deal with Continuing Education?

Every person with a CSL (Construction Supervisor's License) Unrestricted or Restricted, needs to complete 12 hours of CEU credits, every two years, before their license expires.  Restricted license's (CSFA) need to complete 10 hours.

** As of January 1, 2018, the State of Massachusetts will only allow six CEU credits (hours) to be done online.  

If you take courses with GBCC, we will keep track of your hours and credits and send you reminders and course layouts when you need to complete your hours.   At the end of each class, you will be given a certificate.   You must keep all your certificates and turn them into the State when your license is up for renewal.   The State will mail you a renewal form about one month from your renewal date.  Please keep your address current with the Office of Public Safety and Inspections (formerly DPS, Department of Public Safety).  Click Here to go to the OPSI website.

We are currently out training at Construction Companies such as Suffolk, Skanska, Shawmut, Walsh Brothers, Consigli, Dimeo, G. Greene Construction, Cafco, Dellbrook JKS, Windover Construction and more, providing Continuing Education training.  Larger companies are staying ahead of the curve and keeping their employees informed of all the new information and changes to the Building Code.    Please contact us at masscodeprep@gmail.com or call our office at (781) 561-1440 if this is something you would be interested in. 

We also offer 12 hour workshops, held four weekends a year, to train independent Contractor’s, Developer’s, Architect’s, Real Estate Brokers, etc.   For a flat rate of $175.00 you will receive 12 hours of Continuing Education.  Click Here for a list of workshop dates.

There are choices.   You can send your employees to one of our workshops or have us come to you.

We have also offer Online Code Campus.   Where you can fulfill six hours of your credits at your own leisure.  **

Please contact us for pricing and availability at masscodeprep@gmail.com or (781) 561-1440.

We look forward to working with you!
