If you are unable to meet the State’s required September 30th deadline, we will be offering additional Continuing Education classes in October.  Click on the Events & Classes tab above to view the dates.  Please note we are offering these classes as a service. In missing the State required deadline, you may incur penalties and/ or fines from the State.  

Click on “Events & Classes” and then “Calendar” for a listing of all classes and events or to just view Continuing Education classes click on “2016 Continuing Education”.

We are located at 1800 Silas Deane Highway, which is a big brick apartment building called Stepny Place (across from Rita’s).  Go into the driveway of the apartment building and follow the driveway to the back right of the parking lot.  We are the small brick building with a carport and a flagpole (pictured above).

As the license renewal deadline of September 30th approaches, here is some helpful information regarding your license renewal with the CT Department of Consumer Protection.

 1. If licensee has provided an email address to the CT DCP his/her license renewal will be sent via that email address.  No paper copy will be mailed.


 2. If licensee has changed his/her email address and neglected to notify CT DCP of that change, the license renewal will be processed to the last known email address, in which case, you would not receive your license renewal.


 3. If licensee does not have an email address filed with the CT DCP you will receive a paper renewal via the US Postal Service.


Ultimately, it is the licensee’s responsibility to keep the CT Department of Consumer Protection informed of any contact information changes.  We hope you find this information useful during your license renewal process.  Please contact the IEC New England office if you still need to schedule your 2016 Continuing Education class.
