Vermont Plumber's License Renewal Update & FAQ

In May, Vermont Governor Phil Scott signed Act 100 into law extending plumbing licenses due to expire after March 30 to September 30, 2020.

The full press release says this extension is a response to trade workers struggling to obtain continuing education credits for license renewal because either classes were cancelled, or online classes were not obtainable. The state also recommends that all license holders who have a license due to expire after September 30, 2020 should start exploring all available options for obtaining continuing education credits.

How often do I renew my Vermont plumber license?

You must renew your license every two years. If your license has lapsed, it may be renewed within 90 days of its expiration date along with a $15 reinstatement fee in addition to the renewal fee.

If your license has lapsed past 90 days, you must apply for reinstatement and appear before the board. Applicants for license renewal must provide the board with evidence of completion of 8 hours of continuing education or training that is board-approved, completed within the previous 2 years and two of which must be code review. A copy of a certificate is acceptable evidence of this.
