Continuing Education for License Renewal
The revisions to Minnesota Rules, Chapter 4725, became effective on August 4, 2008. Two changes in continuing education requirements for license renewal took effect at that time:
- The number of continuing education credits required annually is reduced for certified representatives of limited well/boring contractors and elevator boring contractors from six credits to two credits. However, those two credits must be from a Minnesota Department of Health (MDH)-presented or MDH–sponsored program. Limited well/boring contractors include pump installers, pitless/screen contractors, dewatering well contractors, dug well/drive point contractors, well sealing contractors, vertical heat exchanger contractors.
- Individual contractors and certified representatives for well contractors and monitoring well contractors must still obtain six credits of MDH-approved continuing education annually. Two of the six credits must be from a MDH-presented or MDH–sponsored program.
License/Registration Renewal: For license/registration renewal, all certified representatives and individual contractors must have obtained two hours of a MDH-presented or MDH-sponsored program in order to renew. Individual contractors and certified representatives for monitoring well contractors and well contractors must also obtain an additional four credits of MDH-approved continuing education (for a total of six credits).
Calendars announcing continuing education opportunities will be provided in the Minnesota Well Management News newsletter and on the Approved (and pending) Upcoming Continuing Education Programs Web page.
