Continuing Education Debuts at 2018 MHISC Fall Meeting

The manufactured housing industry’s first ever continuing education courses were offered at MHISC’s 2018 Fall Meeting at the Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina.

The SC Manufactured Housing Board (SCMHB) has issued continuing education (CE) requirements for the industry.

The SCMHB is the state board that regulates the industry.  MHISC is the business association that represents the industry.

These are classes or programs that holders of professional licenses take to keep up with new laws.

A packed room engaged in two interesting CE seminars at the Fall Meeting.

The first course was on Sales Tax. MHISC Executive Director Mark Dillard cleared up confusion about what’s required for a home to qualify for the state’s two energy efficiency sales tax formulas.

Richard Bagwell, Richey Massey and Marion Moore assisted Dillard for the second course on Site Prep and Installation. They answered questions from the audience and discussed the working relationship between contractors, retailers and other companies.

The SC Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation implemented CE for manufactured housing this year.  Retail dealers, salespersons, installers, contractors and repairers will need to take four hours of CE before renewing their license by June 2020.   After that, they take six hours per every two-year licensing period.

MHISC will continue to offer CE courses at state and chapter meetings.

MHISC’s 2019 Convention will be held at the Omni Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island on July 16-19. MHISC has a room block so go ahead and book your room today, just call (843) 842-8000.
