CE Requirements to Renew a KY Master and Journeyman Plumbers License
New continuing education requirements as of January 4, 2019
- In the state of Kentucky, licensed Master & Journeyman plumbers are required to have 6 total hours of continuing education.
KY plumbing license renewal is pretty straightforward, but it’s due once a year so you can’t slack on it. Here are the details you need to know to keep your Kentucky plumbing license active.
How do I renew my Kentucky plumber license?
It’s a three-step process to renew a master plumbing license in KY. The same goes for journeyman plumbers. Here are the steps to complete for KY plumbing license renewal:
#1: Complete the required KY continuing education
State code dictates that you need to take six hours of continuing education each year, whether you’re a journeyman or you want to renew a master plumbing license in KY.
Specifically, your continuing education courses need to cover one of the following topics:
- The Kentucky State Plumbing Code
- Job safety
- Plumbing trade-specific subject matter
You can complete this part of the KY plumbing license renewal online. In fact, you can take your courses on-demand from any computer, laptop, or mobile device. This should make getting the continuing education hours you need easy and convenient.
#2: Send in the renewal application
Once you finish your continuing education, it’s time to complete the Plumbing License Renewal Application. This one-page application is super simple and shouldn’t take you more than a few minutes to fill out.
If you need to renew a master plumbing license in KY, make sure you attach your certificate of liability insurance to your renewal application. If you have employees, you’ll need to show proof of compliance with workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance laws, too.
#3: Pay the renewal fee
Last up, make a check out to the Kentucky State Treasurer for your renewal fee. It’s $65 if you’re a journeyman plumber. It’s $250 to renew a master plumbing license in KY.
Mail the check, the renewal application, the certificate of completion for your continuing education, and any other required documents (like your proof of insurance) to:
PUBLIC PROTECTION CABINET
Department of Housing, Buildings, and Construction
500 Mero Street, Floor 1
Frankfort, Kentucky 40601
When is my KY plumbing license renewal due?
You need to complete all of the steps of your KY plumbing license renewal by the last day of your birth month each year. So if you were born January 1, your renewal is due January 31 every year. If your birthday is September 14, your renewal is due September 30 each year.
Theoretically, you should get a renewal notice in the mail about 30 days before your license is set to expire. But you can’t rely on that. Even if you don’t get a mailed notice, your renewal is still due at the end of your birth month each year.
It can help to mark a recurring date in the middle of your birth month on your calendar. That way, you have an alert and can quickly knock out your continuing education hours and get your KY plumbing license renewal sent it.
To make renewal easy, complete the continuing education for your KY plumbing license renewal online. Then, make sure your completed renewal application and fee will reach the authorities by the last day of your birth month. That way, you’ll have no problems maintaining your active KY plumbing license.
