Continuing Education for Trades
Journeymen, Master Plumbers, Electricians, HVAC mechanics, and Gas Fitters are required by the Virginia Board of Contractors to take a predetermined number of continuing education hours specific to their trade as part of the licensing renewal process. Additionally, anyone obtaining or renewing a license must take continuing education in their respective profession. Plumbers, HVAC technicians, and Electricians must take three hours of continuing education in their field. Gas Fitters must take one hour. Certificates of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be issued to all Virginia tradesmen upon successful completion of the class. A workbook highlighting the changes is included in the cost of each class and will be distributed when participants arrive for class.
