Continuing Education Opportunities:
There are many opportunities available for continuing education; the City of Salina staff will not be aware of all of them. If you find a particular class (not listed below) and want to be certain it is approved for City of Salina licensed contractors or master/journeyman skilled trades, please be sure to check with the Building Official before submitting your registration and money. The qualified individual, as declared on a Class A, B, C, D building contractor license, is required to obtain 6 hours per year (18 hours over a 3 year licensing cycle) of continuing education, half of which must be code education (IBC, IRC, IFC, NEC, UPC, UMC)
If you are a licensed skilled tradesman (master or journeyman) the requirement is basically the same; six hours per year, (18 hours over the 3 year licensing cycle), half of which are required to be code classes in the trade that you practice and are licensed.
