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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you report my results to the Oregon Construction Contractors Board?

Yes we report all continuing education results electronically to the Oregon CCB. That way you can easily renew your license.

Do you offer the commercial contractor continuing education courses for Oregon?

Yes, we offer the courses for commercial contractors and those are fully approved by the CCB as well.

Do you offer any continuing education training that is not online or correspondence?

We offer online and correspondence continuing education to renew your Oregon license. We do not offer any classroom continuing education courses for OR contractors. We find that most students prefer to complete their continuing education online on their computer, smartphone, or tablet – or out of our course booklet.

Do you provide me with a certificate of completion when I finish your continuing education course?

Yes, all graduates of our Oregon contractor continuing education course will receive a certificate of completion. We can either email, mail, or fax the certificate to you.

Do I need to provide my certificate to the Oregon Construction Contractors Board to prove that I completed my continuing education when I renew my license?

The OR CCB may ask you to provide them with a copy of your continuing education certificate so be sure to keep a copy for your records. You can find out more at their website by clicking here.

Do you renew my Oregon license for me?

No. Completing your continuing education credits does not complete the renewal of your license. Once you have completed all of your required continuing education, you must pay the Oregon Construction Contractors Board the license renewal fees, as we cannot do that for you.

Can I take this course on my phone?

Yes, our courses are mobile compatible. You can finish your continuing education with ease using your phone, tablet, or computer.

What if I still have questions about completing my Oregon continuing education?

No problem. Just call our continuing education specialists at (888)564-9098 or email us at support@pdhacademy.com and they can walk you through what you need to do to complete your Oregon contractor continuing education requirements.

It doesn’t matter whether you want to complete our contractor continuing education courses in Portland, Eugene, Salem, Bend, Medford or Corvallis – our online and correspondence continuing education courses for Oregon contractors can be completed from anywhere.
