Continuing Education (CE) is now required for almost all licensed professions working in the state. A good course will always provide useful, practical, and sometimes surprising information to license-holders.
The CE requirements for the industry are set by the SC Manufactured Housing Board, a state agency. MHISC provides free CE as a member benefit.
