CEC Regulations Adopted by LICEB and State
February 19, 2014. At their monthly meeting, the Landscape Irrigation Contractors Licensing Board, Department of Environmental Protection, formally adopted the regulations defining the continuing education credits needed for contractor license renewal every two years. These regulations were officially signed by LICEB and the Department of the Attorney General and go into effect March 17, 2014.

LICEB will formally notify all state licensed contractors of the regulations which require 16 CECs, of which a minimum of eight (8) CECs must be in a training activity related to water conservation. Additionally, a business permit application (at no fee) will be required and LICEB will be sending this form to all licensed contractors.
