BATC-Housing First Minnesota is pleased to announce the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) has awarded Contractor University the prestigious Accredited Provider status. In addition to offering Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to Minnesota and Wisconsin contractors, Minnesota building officials, and Minnesota REALTORS, Contractor University will now offer IACET CEUs to learners who wish to advance their careers. IACET accreditation allows Contractor University to expand online training for contractors.
“IACET accreditation is recognized as one of the highest achievements in continuing education training,” said Tom Gavaras, Education and Special Programs Manager. “To obtain this accreditation, Contractor University completed an extensive twelve-month application process, including a site audit by IACET.”
According to BATC-Housing First Minnesota’s Executive Director, David Siegel, “The IACET accreditation process has resulted in Contractor University raising the bar on the quality of its education training. We are very proud of this accomplishment.”
Started in 2004, Contractor University provides training that helps our state’s builders and remodelers meet their continuing education requirements, as well as providing educational content that helps our industry members grow their businesses. CEU courses are approved by the Minnesota Department of Labor & Industry, Minnesota Department of Commerce and Wisconsin Department of Safety & Professional Services. Most classroom courses are held at Contractor University’s state-of-the-art training facility in Roseville, Minn. BATC Housing First Minnesota anticipates expanding its online catalog of courses in the near future now that IACET status has been achieved.
