Contractor License Renewal Education with FHBA Partner, RocketCert

How do I renew my Florida Contractor License?

In the state of Florida, certified and registered contractor licenses expire every two years. Registered general contractor licenses expire on August 31 of odd years, and certified general contractor licenses expire on August 31 of even years. In Miami Dade County, licenses expire on August 31 of even years. To renew, you are required to complete 14 hours of continuing education and submit your renewal to the State.

By partnering with RocketCert, FHBA brings to you education that is fully narrated and expertly written. RocketCert provides industry leading customer service. Also, if you find a better price on any online course offered, they will beat it by 20%. If you are looking for other online continuing education, be sure to give them a call. They are constantly developing new courses to help accelerate and advance your career.


    All of these continuing education courses comply with state requirements. You can rest assured that any education completed with RocketCert will be state approved and count towards your license renewal. The courses also come with lifetime access (though we know it won't take that long!)


    Fourteen hours are required for license renewal. RocketCert courses are designed to be taken around a busy schedule. With online courses, you can stop at any time and resume right where you left off.


    After you complete the continuing education, you can instantly print your certificate of completion. The State is notified the next business day. Please contact us if you have any questions about this process.


    Don't forget, continuing education is required for each renewal. As codes, laws, and trends change in your industry, we will continue to refine our courses. Our goal is to offer the highest quality online education out there!
