Since 2003 PacePDH.com has delivered over 400,000 online continuing education hours to more than 20,000 contractors. Pace now is happy to offer continuing education (CE) courses to Oregon Commercial Contractors.
Pace is excited to launch our new Student Management feature that has been specifically designed to help Commercial Contractors in Oregon fulfill their CE requirements more easily. Depending upon your Commercial Contractor Level (1 or 2) and the number of key employees you have, you’re required to take anywhere from 16 to 80 CE hours. With our new system now in place, spreading that load out has never been easier.
The Student Management area provides a centralized location for a company or individual to add key employees and divide up the CE hours in any denomination you choose. You can add and edit student information, assign courses, or login as the students to select individual courses. Student progress tracking and reporting is also available.
Each key employee will have their own individual login so all students can be taking courses on different computers at any time. The system is very user-friendly and simple to understand but as always, live support is just a phone call away by dialing 800-576-4341.
The packages below will allow you to make a volume purchase of course credits, which can then be converted into individual CE courses. The total number of hours required depends upon your commercial contractor level and how many key employees the business has. Course can be taken by one key employee or by multiple key employees.
The following CE hours are required for each two-year licensing period:
|Commercial Contractor Level 1|| 5 or more Key Employees
4 Key Employees
3 Key Employees
2 Key Employees
1 Key Employee
|80 Hours Required
64 Hours Required
48 Hours Required
32 Hours Required
16 Hours Required
|Commercial Contractor Level 2||Any # of key Employees||32 Hours Required|
Note to Dual Licensees - New Oregon CCB Rules that went into effect July 1, 2017
If you hold both an Oregon Residential and Commercial license, now you only need to meet the commercial CE requirements. When selecting courses from open course credits, always choose "Oregon Construction Contractors Board (CCB) - Commercial" as the Board, even if you carry both a commercial and residential license.
Licensees attest they have completed the required continuing education courses during the license renewal process. Courses are not reported by the provider (PacePDH.com) and the licensee does not need to upload or send in their certificates of completion. Certificates are needed only if audited by the Oregon CCB.
