What you need to know about Continuing Education Requirements to renew your Construction Supervisor License in Massachusetts

Who is affected and what do license holders need to do?

Massachusetts Construction Supervisor License holders are now required to earn Continuing Education Credits (CEU's) to renew their license. The Board of Building Regulations announced this program went into effect in July 2011.  Licensees must provide proof of completion of the the required hours per license type for every two year license cycle.

When do I need to obtain the required hours?

Very important; there is confusion and mis-information regarding the timing and requirements of the CEU requirement. Some contractors have reported that they were coaxed to sign up for training prematurely. Some were not told that they had as much as three years to obtain their credit hours. Before you sign up for training make sure you are certain of your renewal date that requires credit hours. Some trainers are capitalizing on contractor ignorance and getting contractors to sign up earlier than neccessary without divulging all the facts. 

  • If your license renews 7/1/2013 or later you will need to provide proof of continuing education credit hours to renew your license at that time.
  • The BBRS has announced that taking approved courses now (before your next renewal date) will count towards your required credit hours. 

How many credits and hours do I need to obtain?

Depending on your license type you will need the minimum required topic credit hours and the balance to come from approved elective courses.
