All general contractors are required to take a two hour mandatory class, and six hours of electives to renew their license. Environmental Solutions Group is an NCHBA approved provider of these courses. General contractors have the option of taking a full day of courses to earn all eight hours in one day, or taking individual courses to earn their hours over a series of days.
In response to the COVID-19 state emergency, the NC Licensing Board for General Contractors has authorized synchronous distance-learning, which means the instructors and students are separated only by distance and not time. For now, most classes will be conducted via Zoom to allow real-time teaching and learning while maintaining social distance.
We will offer one full day of in-person classes at our training center on 10/14/20. The cost is $155, and this will include all 3 courses and lunch. Check-in is at 7:45 am and class begins at 8 am. We have developed a protocol for providing a safe learning environment for our students, following guidance from the CDC.
