Remodeling and Home Design

In Wisconsin, builders/remodelers must hold Dwelling Contractor and Dwelling Contractor Qualifier credentials. The Dwelling Contractor credential simply requires a form and payment; the Dwelling Contractor Qualifier credential requires initial educational courses as well as 12 hours of State-approved continuing education every two years. 

HBA Fox Cities offers courses in both initial certification and continuing education for member and non-member contractors.
