New Rules in Construction Industry

Architects, engineers and land surveyors must complete continuing education programs as a condition of renewing their professional licenses, according to legislation passed by the Michigan House and Senate and placed on Gov. Jennifer Granholm’s desk last week. The governor is expected to sign the bill, H.B. 6374, before the end of the year.

The bill, which amends the Michigan Occupational Code, will require the Michigan Department of Energy, Labor and Economic Growth to establish a program of continuing education for architects, engineers and land surveyors. These professionals will need to complete the program as a condition of renewing their professional licenses.

Currently, the code requires only a demonstration of "continuing professional competence."

If you have questions about the legislation and how it might affect you or your company, please contact David Eberhard (248.784.5187 or, Rodrick Lewis (616.752.2174 or or any other member of Warner Norcross & Judd's Construction Industry Group.
