During this time of social distancing requirements, Massachusetts has allowed for licensees to take all their hours of Continuing Education through distance education. This package will meet your needs and ensure your ability to renew your license with ease. The allowance to take all CE hours through distance education will end on September 14, 2021. Any renewals submitted on or after September 14 will require half your hours to come from in-person classroom education.
This package includes the full 10 hours of required continuing education for renewing a Restricted Construction Supervisor License. In the package, we include:
- 4 hours of code review
- 1 hour of energy code coverage
- 2 hours of workplace safety
- 2 hours of lead safety practices, and
- 1 hour of business practices
In our code review classes, we cover the amendments to the 2015 IBC in the 9th edition of the MSBC. The coverage includes amendments made to the base version and the residential version of the MSBC, allowing for an in-depth look at these changes to the code.
In the energy code class, we go over every amendment made by the state to the Commercial Codes of the 2018 IECC when adopting it as the new energy code for the state. There is discussion for each amendment, offering insight into how the amendment differs from the model IECC, and what it means for Massachusetts contractors.
Next, in our workplace safety class, we go over a review of OSHA, followed by a presentation of the safety responsibilities of employees and employers. In the course, we also go over the most common safety hazards for the construction trades, risks and safety methods from OSHA standard 1926, and safe workplace practices, including a review of the EPA guidelines for dealing with contaminants.
Our lead safety practices class offers instruction for lead-safe renovation practices in Massachusetts, including the current regulations and the best practices to be used when renovating, repairing, or painting any pre-1978 structure.
The business practices class is split into two parts. The first part covers the business practices related to Construction Supervisor Licenses in Massachusetts. We also cover ethics in the construction trades, and business practices for employees. The second portion goes over worker's compensation, covering both the general principles of the program, and how it applies to the construction trades in the state.
Throughout each course are in-text questions, to test your knowledge as you go, and after each course is completed, there will be a final exam that quizzes you on the material you just learned. Once the last exam has been completed, you'll have all the credit hours you need to renew your license, all at your own pace!
