Read our Frequently Asked Questions

I have to take three different courses. Do I need to take them all at once, or one at a time?
You can take each class at your leisure, spanning multiple weeks/reporting periods.  DPOR will log the results of your completion and, when time comes for you to renew, they will be waiting for you.  Taking this course is only a prerequisite for your tradesman license and does not start the process to renew it!
