Texas Plumbing License Renewals and Deadlines

When must I complete my Texas Plumbing Continuing Education?

In the State of Texas, plumbing licenses expire at the end of each month.  While the Continuing Professional Education year runs from September through August, the related CE courses are offered July through June.  While this is the source of considerable confusion, the goal is to ensure every licensee has at least a three month window to complete their CE requirement.  For example, a license expiring in September can complete the required CE via a live course in July, August, or September.Effective September 1, 2017, all licensees (regardless of location) have the option of completing their CE requirement via live course or correspondence course (with 150 questions).

The following table outlines when the proper year's Continuing Education is available based on your license expiration date.  This table governs all TSBPE approved Continuing Education providers.
