  • Specialized or advanced module
  • Workplace safety
  • Business Practices
  • Workers' compensation
  • Laws and rules
  • Wind mitigation (ONLY applicable for Building, General, Residential, Roofing, Specialty Structure, and Glass and Glazing contractors)
  • Remaining hours can be any board approved construction-related instruction

License Renewal Dates

Florida Contractors are required to renew their license biannually. License renewal requires the completion of 14 hours of continuing education and the payment of renewal fees by August 31st. 

If you are a Registrant, meaning your license is registered, your renewal date will be August 31st of an odd-numbered year.

If you are a Certificateholder, meaning your license is state-certified, your renewal date will be August 31st of an even-numbered year.

License Renewal Fees

License renewal also requires the payment of renewal fees. Renewal fees for most construction licenses are $205 (+$50 per qualified business).
