Minnesota Contractor Credit Course Now Available Online

Contractor University, the education program of the Builders Association of the Twin Cities, has launched an online course in addition to its popular in-person class offerings.

Its first online course, New Home Construction from Permit Application to Final Inspection, has been certified by the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry and counts toward seven contractor and building official education credit hours in Minnesota, including energy credit.

Peter Kulczyk, principal of Green Code Knowledge and Housing Industry News contributor, teaches the course that covers the construction process for a single-family home in Minnesota under the 2015 Minnesota Residential Code and 2015 Minnesota Energy Code.
