License and Permit Renewals

All licensed fire equipment dealers are required to complete:

    • 1 hour business practices
    • 1 hour workers compensation

2 technical hours and 2 Business Practice hours

Saturday Courses:

8 technical hours PLUS 1 hour workers compensation or 1 hour workplace safety

(if you attend the entire day – 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.)


Why is business practice 2 hours when I only need 1 hour?

Bruce Carter’s course is so full of information that it needed to be 2 hours. You will receive the required 1 hour of business practice for this course along with another hour of professional development.

Is business practices being offered on Saturday?

No, if you still need that hour, you will need to attend the class on Friday.
