If you are a contractor who has been licensed for less than a year, and you are coming up on that first renewal, this is the course for you. This course contains seven hours of continuing education content that will fulfil training requirements for license renewal.

This course begins with a look at Florida building codes, specifically the codes dealing with wooden and concrete wall construction.

Then, the course addresses the topic of construction liens and the provisions of the Construction Lien Law.

From there, the course examines some of the regulations that affect contractors. This segment includes a discussion of unlicensed work and registration of contracting businesses.

Next, the course will take on the topic of wind mitigation. This segment both addresses what wind mitigation is and explores the regulation of construction techniques used to mitigate wind gusts.

In the last segment, the course will cover safety. This segment contains a discussion of workers’ compensation protection and an examination of job-site safety and the related OSHA regulations.
