As a Certified Professional Builder, you'll be at the top of the Oklahoma home-building industry. By attending the convention, you can earn a year's worth of continuing education needed to qualify as a CPB.
A Certified Professional Builder voluntarily commits to a set of industry best practices. These include carrying workers compensation and general liability insurance, building to required code standards and taking continuing education classes to stay at the top of your field, among other requirements.
All Certified Professional Builders must obtain nine hours of continuing education each year to ensure they are current on industry best practices and new regulations - and this is a fun, educational and easy way to get those hours.
Hope to see you there. This year's convention has a lot to offer!
