Residential contractor specialized education programs

The Construction Contractors Board may allow a residential contractor to participate in a specialized education program under ORS 701.120 (Specialized education programs) in lieu of completing continuing education described in ORS 701.082 (Residential contractor continuing education requirements) (1)(c). The board may establish a minimum number of specialized education program hours or courses that the residential contractor must complete during a two-year period to substitute for all or part of the required continuing education hours. If the specialized education program provides training in one- and two-family dwelling construction, the board may approve the specialized education program as a substitute for continuing education only if the program meets the program criteria described in ORS 455.805 (Criteria for granting of master builder status) (3) and Department of Consumer and Business Services rules adopted under ORS 455.810 (Certificates).
