Continuing Education (CE) credits are tracked by the Construction Industry Licensing Board (CILB) of the Department of Business and Professional Regulations (DBPR).
Visit www.myfloridalicense.com/intercept.asp and log in or create an account to access your CE credit history. This is also where you will go to renew your license.
Important decisions about your license are made at the Florida CILB. The Board meets for three days each month from January through November.
The meetings deal with disciplinary action, involve deliberation about the proper scope of work within each license category (opinion letters are issued with decisions) and other important policy issues are discussed.
The requirements and interpretations about Continuing Education and implementation of the public awareness program regarding unlicensed activities are other important issues frequently considered by this Board and its committees.
Licensed contractors can receive up to four hours of CILB-approved CE credit for attending the disciplinary proceedings with advance approval from the Board. The Regulation (61G4-18.001 Continuing Education Requirements for Certificate holders and Registrants) states: Of the required 14 hours of continuing education, up to four hours of credit may be earned by attending a meeting of the Board wherein disciplinary cases are considered. At least seven days advance notice of the intent to attend the disciplinary case session must be given to the Board, and the licensee must check in with Board staff prior to the beginning of the disciplinary proceedings. A maximum of four hours will be allowed during a renewal cycle. Credit hours shall be awarded on an hour for hour basis up to a maximum of four hours. Credit hours may not be earned when the licensee attends a disciplinary case session as a party to a disciplinary action.
The calendar of committee meetings and agenda material is posted prior to each meeting at the CILB Web site
