construction continuing education.

Award Winning Instructor Is Here

In a past blog entry we re-introduced our instructor by way of his long-standing experience in the construction industry.  30+ years is a very long time working in construction, running his own corporation for 28+ years of that time - successfully too!  - That says something grand.  Many contractors disappear as fast as they appear.  Phil is sorry many of his clients (general contractors) are gone!  They didn't last.  Many are NOT contracting today!

But this blog entry is about another aspect of our instructor, Phil Stam - and why you ought to pick him.  He is an award winning speaker and has been engaged in presenting to groups for 19 years now.  Learning how to connect with you, as his audience, and presenting material in an interesting and enthusiastic manner, makes the difference between boring and appealing.

When you come to our class you will see exactly what we are talking about.  When was the last time you had an award winning speaker lead your continuing education class.  Florida contractors have enough of a difficult job keeping things afloat nowadays.  The requirement to obtain construction continuing education classes may be tedious for you, but we make it valuable.  Every class we have presented so far has taught each student something BIG - that they didn't know when they walked in.

Make sure you are next - to be able to say that about your continuing education class.

Are You In Violation of DBPR Rules and Florida Statutes?

Attention Florida licensed contractors!  Of all the sections we cover in our Florida construction continuing education course, Rules & Laws is one of the more important one.  We take a brief look at several statutes that govern how we, as contractors, must conduct our affairs.  We believe this is the prime reason the legislature has caused for continuing education seminars to be a construction contractor requirement or prerequisite for licensure in Florida.  We love looking at these items because they bring neater focus to all the actions we take in the business place.

So, having that in mind, we would like to "challenge" you to verify that you are in compliance with one important point of law.

Go to this LINK of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

Enter you name, or license number and confirm your contact information and address!  If any part of this is incorrect, you are in violation.  The statute is clear!

Let's look at this statute.

(2)  Each certificateholder or registrant of the department shall be solely responsible for notifying the department in writing of the certificateholder's or registrant's current mailing address and phone number. If the mailing address is not the certificateholder's or registrant's physical address, the certificateholder or registrant shall also supply the physical address.
(a)  A certificateholder's or registrant's failure to notify the department of a change of address or phone number shall constitute a violation of this section.
(b)  The certificateholder or registrant shall be responsible for retaining proof that the certificateholder or registrant has notified the department of the certificateholder's or registrant's current address of record.
(3)  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, service by regular mail to a certificateholder's or registrant's address of record shall constitute adequate and sufficient notice to the certificateholder or registrant for any official communication to the certificateholder or registrant by the board or the department, except when other service is required pursuant to the provisions of s. 455.224 or s. 455.225.

This statute is FL489.124(2).  You can find it on a list of links on our Useful Links tab.

Let's look at this statute!  It basically says that YOU must maintain your address of record CORRECT!  If you fail to keep it correct, then, you are in violation of this statute!  Furthermore, you must maintain PROOF that you sent the department a correct address.  Plus, if it is NOT correct the department is not required to discover the correct address - they may simply continue to send you things by mail - IMPORTANT things included - and they will, by law, be considered to have sent you proper notification, even if they keep getting all these things back from the post office saying, FORWARDED, MOVED, VACANT...or whatever.

Are you in compliance?  Is your address correct?  It's really easy to fix this!

Check your address to see it is right.  Many contractors in our continuing education courses find this point of law worrisome and check their information as soon as they can.  You should too.

Register for our continuing education classes for little, but potentially significant points of law and regulation that could truly cause a stir in your operation. CEU credits from a continuing education provider that cares about helping you with the little things is valuable - especially when some of the items presented are big, or when several small items add up to a tidy sum!  We are in the business of providing you with premium quality continuing education programming that is fun, entertaining, valuable and engaging.  Don't bother trying to swallow 14 hours of material in one day!  That will only drive you to drink!  We are able to serve your needs in this department, very well, very conveniently and very economically.

Another Class is Done

Greetings contractors!

Another month of information-filled days of continuing education through Contractors Education & Training Corporation has come to a close.

Our contractors have completed their CEU requirements and all expressed interest in the class and in the material that was shared.  Many contractors are promised the sun and the moon in a class and later find it to be just, hot air. 

All attendees gave the instructor a TOP GRADE and left thanking us for a good job.

Renewal period is drawing near.  Get your classes done - whether with us or somebody - but don't let it go "delinquent".

Look for a continuing education class near you!
