Course Content: Continuing education consists of approved courses that impart appropriate and related knowledge in the regulated industries. Courses may include relevant materials that are included in licensing exams subject to the limitations imposed in 780 CMR 110.R5.4.6, item 1. The burden of demonstrating that courses impart appropriate and related knowledge is upon the person seeking approval or credit.

Unless determined by the coordinator textbooks are not required to be used for continuing education courses. The coordinator must provide students with a syllabus containing, at a minimum, the course title, the times and dates of the course offering, the names and addresses or telephone numbers and email address of the course coordinator and instructor, and a detailed outline of the subject materials to be covered. Any written or printed material given to students must be of readable quality and contain accurate and current information.

The following courses will not be approved for credit:

1. courses designed solely to prepare students for a license examination in a discipline other than CSL;
2. courses in mechanical office skills, including typing, speed reading, or other machines or equipment. Computer or
    business skills courses are allowed, if appropriate and related to the regulated industry of the licensee;
3. courses in motivation, psychology, or any other course not related to the building industry.
4. courses that are primarily intended to impart knowledge of specific products of specific companies, if the use of the
    product or products relates to the sales promotion or marketing of one or more of the products discussed.
Board Provisions: Courses must be approved by the BBRS in advance and will be approve on the basis of the applicant's compliance with the provisions of this section relating to continuing education in the regulated industries. The BBRS shall make the final determination as to the approval and assignment of credit hours for courses. Courses must be at least one hour in length.

Approval will not be granted for time spent on meals or other unrelated activities. Breaks may not be accumulated in order to dismiss the class early. Classes shall not be offered to any one student for longer than six hours in one day, excluding meal breaks.

Application for course approval must be submitted 120 days before the course offering.

Approval is granted for a subsequent offering of identical continuing education courses without requiring a new application if the course is offered within the approved 24 month cycle. The BBRS shall deny future offerings of courses if they are found not to be in compliance with the laws relating to course approval. Course shall be updated subject to periodic review by the BBRS to ensure currency with technological changes in 780 CMR.
