Rhode Island Contractor Continuing Education Additional information:

Rhode Island requires all residential contractors to complete 5 hours of continuing education every 2 years. Our online continuing education course is approved to fulfill the Rhode Island contractor continuing education requirements.

That said, not all online continuing education courses are approved in Rhode Island for registration renewal, so before taking a course other than ours you will want to make sure that the course is fully approved by the Rhode Island Contractors’ Registration and Licensing Board.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer any continuing education training that is not online?
We offer online continuing education to renew your Rhode Island registration. We do not offer any classroom continuing education courses for RI contractors. We find that most students prefer to complete their continuing education online on their computer, smartphone, or tablet.

Do you provide me with a certificate of completion when I finish your continuing education course?
Yes, all students who complete our RI contractor continuing education course will receive a certificate of completion. We will email the certificate once you have complete and paid for the course.

Do I need to provide my certificate to the Rhode Island Contractors’ Board to prove that I completed my continuing education when I renew my registration?
The state of Rhode Island will ask you to provide them with a copy of your continuing education certificate so be sure to keep a copy for your records. 

Do you report my hours to the Rhode Island Contractors’ Board?

No. You must submit a copy of your certificate of completion with your renewal.

Do you renew my Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island 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 RI 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 Rhode Island contractor continuing education requirements.
