Frequently Asked Questions

I hold a Hoisting Machinery license with multiple classes. Do I need to complete continuing education for each of my classes?
Yes. The purpose of the continuing education is to refresh the license holder of the proper and safe operations of the machinery in use. You will need to complete each course separately. You can either pay for each course separately or add multiple courses into your shopping cart above.

Do you report my results to the Massachusetts Department of Public Safety?
Massachusetts doesn’t allow us to report your hours.  You just need to provide them with a copy of your certificate of completion when you finish the online course and renew your CSCL license.

Do you provide me with a certificate of completion when I finish the Massachusetts Hoisting course?
Yes, all students of our Massachusetts Hoisting license continuing education courses will receive a certificate of completion once you have passed and paid for the course.  We will email your certificate the same business day if purchased before 3pm EST. If purchased after 3pm EST, you certificate will be emailed the following business day.

Do I need to complete the continuing education every year?
No, in Massachusetts you only need to complete the course every two years in order to renew your hoisting license.

Do you offer any Hoisting continuing education training that is not online?
Actually all of our hoisting continuing education training is done online.  It can be done on your laptop, mac, smartphone, iPad, or tablet.

Do I need to provide my certificate to the Massachusetts Department of Public Safety to prove that I completed my continuing education when I renew my license?
The state of MA will ask you to provide them with a copy of your continuing education certificate so be sure to keep a copy for your records.

 Do I need any special software on my computer to complete this course to renew my license?
Not at all.  As long as you have an internet connection and can get online our course will work fine on your computer.

I have an IPad.  Can I do the Hoisting course on my iPad or iPhone?
Yes, our Hoisting course works perfectly on iPhone and iPad.

Will this continuing education course work on my android phone or android tablet?
Yes, our online course works great on all android devices.

I have been doing construction for a long time.  Can I get an exemption on my continuing education requirements?
That is something you will want to talk to the state about. We are not aware of any exemptions to the CE rule. However, if you are unable to obtain the continuing education, you can place your license in inactive status for up to 1 year. However, not Hoisting operations can take place while the license is in inactive status.

What if I still have questions about completing my MA Hoisting continuing education?

No problem.  Just call our continuing education specialists at (888)334-9497 or email us atsupport@247mass.com .
