Do I need to complete continuing education to renew my Massachusetts license?
Any person with a license expiration date of July 1, 2013, or after will need to comply with continuing education requirements. A licensed construction supervisor must acquire a certain number of continuing education hours each 2 year renewal period based upon license category.
Unrestricted Construction Supervisors (identified as Construction Supervisor License on the license card) must attain at least 12 hours of continuing education credit.
Restricted Construction Supervisors (identified as 1 and 2 Family License on the license card) must acquire at least 10 hours.
Specialty Construction Supervisors must acquire at least 6 hours of credit. Specialty categories include:
- Windows / Siding
- Solid Fuel Burning
The maximum number of hours required for any given licensee is 12 hours, regardless of how many categories appear on the license card. A person who is licensed in a specialty category, whether one, two or all six, needs only to achieve the requisite 6 hours of continuing education credit. However, please remember that each license category requires certain content to be covered during training, such as workplace safety and lead safe practices.
How do I renew my Massachusetts Construction Supervisor License?
- Complete the required continuing education credits.
- Request a renewal application from DPS by email.
See: Request for CSL Renewal Form (Check your spam or junk folders for a “Renewal Notice Enclosed” item from “EOPSS MA”, after you send this request. Allow up to three days to receive this form.)

Attach payment and CEU certificates.
Licenses must be renewed every two years for a fee of $100.00. There is a one-year grace period to renew licenses after expiration. For an additional fee of $100.00, licenses can be renewed up to two years after expiration. Beyond that, it’s necessary to take an exam and apply for a new license.
