Continuing Education

The next license renewal deadline is August 31st, 2018!

Florida Contractor License Renewal Requirements:

All State Registered and Certified Contractors and Inspectors are required to complete 14 hours of continuing education prior to their renewal period.  All Dade County licensed contractors must complete 16 hours of CE.  Architects and Engineers are also required to complete designated hours.

Gold Coast School of Construction offers a complete package including ALL mandatory hours (Advanced, Workers Comp., Safety, Business Practices, Technical, Laws and Rules, Accessibility, Wind Mitigation and Ethics Training).  Available both in class and online (Note: Dade County Contractors can only take 50% of their required hours online.)

If you have any additional questions regarding continuing education requirements, feel free to contact our Career Counselors at 1-800-732-9140.

Contractors with Multiple Licenses:

Often, but not always, our continuing education packages can cover the license renewal requirements for several licenses.  Gold Coast will report your completions for all state licenses at no additional charge.
