CE Requirements to Renew MN Residential Contractor or Building Official Licenses

The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) lays out very clear continuing education (CE) guidelines for a variety of license types, including residential contractors and building officials:

Residential builders (QB), remodelers (QC), and roofers (QR) 

  • If you have a QB, QC, or QR license and you’re the qualifying person, the state requires that you take 14 hours of CE in order to renew your registration every two years. 
  • Of the 14 hours, you need two code-focused hours: one on residential energy codes or residential energy conservation measures and one on residential construction business management strategies. Your remaining 12 hours can be non-code, but they still need to focus on the latest federal and state regulations and/or industry-specific topics (like workforce safety). 

Certified building officials

Building officials also have a two-year certificate period, which means they need to complete their CE hours on a biennial basis. The hours you need can be either code or non-code, but make sure you’re taking the appropriate number of hours for your specific license type. The DLI requirements are as follows:

  • Building official (BO): 38 hours
  • Building official limited (LB): 38 hours
  • Accessibility (AS): 6 hours
