It's part of an effort to drive down bonding costs, which skyrocketed as contractors built more and more houses during boom times. Its first-ever continuing education requirements for residential contractors took effect Oct. 1, meaning that operators renewing their licenses afterward must prove they've completed the 16-hour curriculum. Contractors stand to shell out at least $200 for the classes, on top of the $325 in licensing fees.
The classes vary by field, but three courses totaling eight hours are mandated for nearly everyone. None is as controversial as the class known almost ironically as BEST, or building exterior shell training.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
