This package is designed for all licensed plumbers in Minnesota and fulfills twelve hours of continuing education (CE) on the code required for this license renewal cycle. A total sixteen hours of CE must be completed to renew a plumbing license.
The first course in this package begins with a two-hour survey of both the Residential Energy Code for Minnesota and the 2020 Commercial Energy Code, including every amendment to the 2018 IECC during its adoption as the basis of the Minnesota Energy Code.
This is followed by a two-hour portion of the class that focuses on the changes made to the 2020 NEC that most significantly affect the plumbing trade. In some cases, the changes will be to general requirements that would affect all trades that connect equipment or appliances to the electrical system, including changes to Mechanical Execution of Work, Electrical Connections, Terminal Connection Torque, Outlet, Device, Pull, and Junction Boxes, Corrosive Environments, Splash Pad playground water features, GFCI Protection for Fountain Pumps.
Finally, we've included a course designed to fulfill the eight hours of code and law continuing education (CE) required for all Master and Journeymen Plumbers in Minnesota. The class covers every amendment incorporated into the 2020 Minnesota Plumbing Code, showing what is deleted, added, or changed from the model 2018 UPC. The final six hours of the class explores every significant change made to 2020 Minnesota Plumbing Code Chapters 2 through 11, 16 & 17 (the Chapters adopted by Minnesota). Every significant change made during the 2012-2018 UPC code review cycle is explored along with numerous more minor revisions. The changes are presented in a “cut-and-paste” format that shows what has been deleted, added, or revise, followed by a discussion of the reasons for the change as explained by the IAPMO Technical Committees, supplemented with information from the plumbing industry to help illustrate the effect of the change on working plumbers.
