Continuing Professional Education For Texas Plumbers (CPE)

Plumbers and Inspectors licensed in Texas must take a Continuing Education Course of six contact hours each year before renewing their license.   Specifically, PLL Section 1301.404(B) says “A person who holds a license or endorsement under this chapter must complete at least six hours of continuing professional education annually to renew the person’s license or endorsement.”

Special note for 2023:  As the TSBPE transitions from fiscal year to calendar year tracking of CPE credits, courses taken in the second half of 2022 will also count for 2023 renewals (i.e. two renewals using one CPE credit) due to their system limitations.  If you chose to (or accidentally) complete a CPE course in July-December 2023 even though you already have a 2023 CPE credit, our clients will be given CPE credit for the 2024 renewal.  No refunds are available after the fact since no CPE credits will be wasted.

NOTE: Our correspondence courses allow clients to download the material and submit their answers online.

Apprentice plumbers are only required to take annual CPE if they have an endorsement (Drain Cleaner, Residential Utilities Installer, etc.).  However, one live CPE (via correspondence is not allowed) is required before applying for the Tradesman exam and two are required before applying for the Journeyman exam.  In all cases, the TSBPE will soon require the first CPE to be a special “Apprentice Continuing Education” course, which are shown separately below (beginning in December 2023).

Plumbers with the Medical Gas Endorsement must complete a 2 hour Med Gas CE course before their renewal every three years.  We schedule these on select dates after Saturday Plumbing CE courses and before Weekday Plumbing CE courses taught by Med Gas certified instructors.  We also offer online live webinars and the TSBPE once again allows completion via correspondence course.  All three options are included in the course lists below.
