Continuing education requirements for residential building contractors are modified by a new law.

Sponsored by Rep. Mike Nelson (DFL-Brooklyn Park) and Sen. David Tomassoni (DFL-Chisholm), the law represents an attempt by the Department of Labor and Industry to make course standards more transparent. Provisions include:

setting clear standards for course content;

allowing contractors to fulfill education requirements through approved online courses; and

raising fees for approval and renewal of courses.

The law takes effect Aug. 1, 2010.
