    Please Note:

    Due to the growing number of concerns regarding the availability of applicable classes, we have implemented a two-week Pre-Registration process for licensees which includes a self-enrollment maximum, that is directly related to the number of licenses you hold. For example, if you have one license, your maximum is eight hours (the minimum continuing education requirement for Johnson County contractor license holders). If you hold two licenses, your maximum is 16 hours, and so on. Please send your request for additional enrollment to contractor.education@jocogov.org.

    Continuing Education Credit Policy

    We understand that some calls must be answered and emergencies arise, though your peers and instructor(s) appreciate your commitment to the course for which you have registered to attend for the length of time listed.

    • If you are arriving after the timeframes below, please see a Contractor Licensing staff member on-site or call 913-715-2233, Option #2, to discuss your options. Please note, traffic is not considered a grievance. Doors open at 7:00 a.m. and we encourage you to arrive early to ensure there are no issues with your check-in.
    • If you need to leave early, please see a Contractor Licensing staff member on-site or call 913-715-2233, Option #2, to discuss your options immediately. Options will not be provided after the date of your class. Please plan arrangements as necessary for a full credit.

    • Please be considerate of your instructor and peers if you must use your laptops, reading materials, or cell phones. Instructors and Contractor Licensing Staff have the authority to ask you to leave the class with no credit if you are disrupting the learning of your peers by engaging in alternate activities.
