Continuing Education for License Renewal
Well Management Program
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 contact hours required annually for certified representatives of limited well/boring contractors and elevator boring contractors is now two contact hours. However, those two contact hours 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 obtain six contact hours of MDH-approved continuing education annually. Two of the six contact hours 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 contact 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 contact hours of MDH-approved continuing education (for a total of six contact hours).
