I missed the deadline. Can I still complete my Continuing Education requirements?

Yes

According to the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (DLI), contractors have until 11:59 pm on March 31st, 2017 to renew their BC license. Contractors will be charged an $80.00 late fee for any renewal payments processed after the deadline.

  • A late fee of $80 is automatically assessed when a completed renewal is not received in DLI’s offices by the license expiration date.
  • By law, a completed license renewal submitted by March 1 is automatically deemed to be a timely renewal.
  • DLI cannot guarantee that renewals submitted after March 1 will be processed prior to the expiration date, and a license cannot be considered to be renewed until it is completely processed and approved by DLI.
  • After March 31, municipalities cannot issue building permits to contractors whose license renewals have not been processed and approved.
  • The late applications with the $80 late fee are accepted for two years after your license renewal date.

 

How is the state notified when I complete my continuing education requirements?

We submit your continuing education directly to the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry using your qualified individual license, examples include QB123456 or QC987654.
