Oregon Contractor Continuing Ed Additional information:
Oregon residential contractors must fulfill a requirement of between 8 and 16 hours of continuing education to renew their Oregon contractor license. Our online and correspondence continuing education classes are approved to fulfill the Oregon contractor continuing education requirements, other than the 3 hours you get directly from the CCB. See above for details.
That said, not all online and correspondence continuing education courses are approved in Oregon for license renewal, so before taking a course other than ours you will want to make sure that the course is fully approved by the OR CCB.
