Contractor License Renewal

Salt Lake Community College offers continuing education courses for contractor license renewal. These courses meet the Division of Occupational & Professional Licensing (DOPL) requirements for the state of Utah. DOPL requires 6 hours of continuing education every renewal year. Three hours must be in-person or live webinar. The additional 3 hours may be in-person, live webinar, or on-line courses.  

 

HVAC contractors are required to have 3 of their 6 hours of CE as "directly related to the installation, repair, or replacement of a heating, ventilation, or air conditioning system" for the 2019 renewal.

FAQs

Please call 801-957-5200.

Cancellations must be made 3 days before class starts.  Once class has started there will be no refunds.  If you wish to re-register, you will be required to pay the tuition again.   

A certificate will be mailed within 2-4 weeks after successful completion of the course exam.

Yes, some online contractor courses are available for registration during non-renewal years. Contractors could also consider enrolling in electrician continuing education courses to fulfill core contractor requirements during non-renewal years. 

Completion of the Continuing Education Courses at SLCC does not guarantee the ability to obtain a Utah state contractor’s license to practice as a contractor.  Licensure is the exclusive right and responsibility of each state.  In order to practice as a Contractor, students must satisfy individual state requirements, independent of SLCC requirements.  It is highly recommended that students consult in advance with the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL), or similar agencies in other states, to find out more about eligibility for licensure.  DOPL can be reached at 801-530-6628 or at their website

For students who plan to work as a Contractor in another state, here is one suggested website for researching state licensure requirements: License Finder sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor.

If you have difficulty finding the licensure requirements for your state, please contact your Program Manager or SLCC’s state authorization coordinator for help.
