Why Do I Need Continuing Education?

The Georgia State Licensing Board requires all Residential Basic and Residential Light Commercial contractors to obtain Continuing Education hours to maintain their licenses on a biennial basis. (GENERAL contractors do not need any.)

Georgia Continuing Education hours may be fulfilled through both self-guided Online Content and Live Classroom seminars. A minimum of 50% of the required hours MUST come from Live Classroom Continuing Education seminars.

Georgia State Licensing Board has reviewed and accepted our Association of Construction Industry Certified Professionals'

LIVE WEBINARS as LIVE CLASSROOM HOURS! This means you can do ALL your hours via LIVE WEBINARS - No need to drive to a classroom - ACICP's Online Live Class webinars consist of live instructor-led webinars provided over the internet in a virtual classroom.
