Internet continuing education courses for manufactured home installers must be approved by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development or by the Department of Labor and Industry.
That is a new requirement under a law effective April 17, 2021.
Sponsored by Rep. Rob Ecklund (DFL-International Falls) and Sen. Rich Draheim (R-Madison Lake), the law requires the approval to accompany the course completion certificate issued to the student by the course sponsor.
For other areas of construction trades, online courses must be approved by the International Distance Education Certification Center or the International Association for Continuing Education and Training, before the course is submitted for department approval.
