Continuing education is important to many professionals as it is often a requirement to renew licenses and certifications. Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (MN DOLI) requires residential contractors to attend approved continuing education courses to renew licenses every 2 years. ZOTA Professional Training understands this need for contractor continuing education and offers multiple opportunities for contractors to earn these continuing education units (CEUs). Both Initial and Refresher EPA Lead Renovator Certification Courses taken through ZOTA in the state of Minnesota provide continuing education hours toward your contractor license renewal! On top of these values, ZOTA also offers training courses in Environmentally Safe and Friendly Construction as well as Building Energy. Check out the courses below for more information.
