Renewal Deadline Extended Due to Tropical Storm Isaac

The DBPR has extended the deadline for renewal of certified contractors and both certified and registered electrical contractors whose licenses are set to expire August 31, 2012. The deadline for these license holders is now midnight September 14, 2012. The state provided an extension because of the impact of Tropical Storm Isaac across the state.

These licensees now have until midnight on September 14, 2012 to complete their continuing education requirements and renew their licenses without having to pay a late fee. Renewal extension FAQs are also available online.

As always, use the online renewal system at for faster, more efficient service. Licensees who wish to fax their continuing education course completion certificates to the Bureau of Education and Testing to expedite renewal may use fax number 850.922.2316.

For more information call the gals who always keep you current with the latest information available. Or email us at

Re-activation of Inactive Licenses

There is some good news for contractors with Inactive licenses! The number of continuing education credits that an inactive or delinquent inactive licensee must complete before they can reactivate their license has been reduced. Effective July 1, 2012, an inactive or delinquent inactive licensee will only need to complete the CEUs for the renewal period immediately prior to the reactivation.


This means that only one cycle needs to be fulfilled. You no longer have to complete every year that you missed. You will need to complete the continuing education requirements in place at the time of the last renewal for your profession. That includes 14 hours of board-approved continuing education that must include the following:

For CILB Licenses -
·         8 hours general credit
·         1 hour workers’ compensation
·         1 hour workplace safety
·         1 hour business practices
·         1 hour advanced building code
·         1 hour laws and rules
·         1 hour wind mitigation methodologies

For ECLB Licenses -
·         7 hours technical
·         1 hour workers’ compensation
·         1 hour workplace safety
·         1 hour business practices
·         2 hours false alarm prevention (for all certified and registered alarm contractors and certified electrical contractors who perform alarm work)
·         1-3 hours general credit
·         1 hour Florida Building Code advanced module course

What a great change from the previous way of doing things. If you have any questions, as always you can shoot us an email or give us a ring.
