You now have a choice about how you take CPE!
Beginning September 1, 2017, anyone can take a correspondence course regardless of where they reside.
The 2020-2021 CPE courses begin July 1, 2020, and end June 30, 2021. Class size is limited to 45 students; therefore, please allow adequate time for scheduling. To assure that you take the correct course for your renewal, refer to the chart below for expiration date compliance.
Instructional Materials for CPE Courses
All 6-hour CPE courses are based on a set of instructional materials (book) written by one of three publishers: Associated Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors of Texas (APHCC), Institute of Continuing Education (ICE), or Winn’s Continuing Education, Inc. (Winn’s). Board Rule § 365.15(f) allows the TSBPE to post a copy of the table of contents for each book on our website so you can see the differences in the material covered. A Course Provider may use any of the three books, and you must contact the individual provider to find out which book that provider has chosen. We hope that providing this information will allow you to make a more informed decision about the course you select to fulfill your annual continuing professional education requirement.
