  • Company Payment: A company paying for multiple plumbers may send one check or credit card for the total amount covering the cost for all employees attending the class.

General Information

  • Proof of Licensure:  You may be required to present your current plumbing license at the time of check-in for your continuing education class.
  • CPE Requirements: Master Plumbers must complete 6 hours every year and Journeyman Plumbers must complete 4 hours every year in order to renew their license for the next calendar year.
  • Confirmations: You will receive a confirmation if you provide an email address.
  • Sign-In Day of Class: Everyone must sign-in at the registration desk on the day of class, even if you are pre-registered. You will receive your textbook at that time.
  • Textbooks:  The Continuing Education textbook is updated with new topics every year and all registrants are required to purchase a textbook every year. You will receive your textbook at registration (sign-in) on the day of class.
  • Certificate of Attendance: You will receive your Certificate of Attendance once classes end for the day. This is your proof that you have completed your 2018 Continuing Education requirements so you may renew your license for 2018
  • License Renewal: Completion of a Continuing Professional Education class DOES NOT renew your license automatically.  Your license is renewed through the State Plumbing Board of Louisiana who will distribute renewal notices every Fall.  You MUST complete their renewal process in order to have a valid license for the following year.
