Continuing Education

The SC Manufactured Housing Board and the state legislature approved CE requirements for the MH Industry in 2018,

Virtually every licensed profession in South Carolina now needs to take a specific number of hours in order to renew their license. When it became inevitable that CE would be required for manufactured home licensees, the association worked with officials to accomplish two goals:

A reasonable, minimal number of hours required.

Allowing the association to offer the classes at low or no cost. For some professions, courses are only available from for-profit schools. The for-profit courses can be costly and the selection is often limited.
