Tampa, FL (PRWEB) August 04, 2011
RedVector.com, the leader in online Florida contractor continuing education (CE) and a pioneer in green building and online LEED training, has received Florida Construction Industry Licensing Board (FCILB) approval for an additional 27 hours of green CE courses this year. The Florida contractor continuing education courses and course packages help contractors meet their renewal requirements and advance in the green building industry. Florida contractors are required by law to complete 14 continuing education hours biennially by August 31; renewal occurs in even years for certified contractors and odd years for registered contractors.
Among the first to offer high-quality online Florida contractor continuing education courses with a focus on green building and sustainable design, RedVector delivers innovative and in-demand course content written by a team of green design experts and continually updated to keep pace with the latest green building practices.
“An increasing number of Florida contractors are also LEED credentialed professionals,” says Jeff Nippes, Director of Content Development for RedVector. “Our goal is to ensure they are able to take courses that count for both professional licenses, particularly because of the high demand for green topics right now in the construction industry. Even as other sections of the market remain sluggish, green building and sustainable design projects are growing rapidly. As a result, more and more Florida contractors are seeking the LEED credentials they need to stay competitive in the industry.”
RedVector’s green-focused eLearning curriculum features essential courses for Florida contractor continuing education such as those focusing on Florida statutes and building codes; commercial and residential green building practices; sustainability and measurement systems; as well as online LEED certification and exam prep.
