(1) As used in this section, a “specialized education program” means one or more of the following:

(b) A board-approved program from an accredited college or university that grants a two-year or four-year degree upon successful completion of the program.

(c) An apprenticeship program that is approved by the board.

(2) The board may identify general contractor and specialty contractor activities that require or substantially benefit from specialized education and establish standards for programs providing specialized education in those activities. The board may recognize and adopt the program standards established by another state agency regulating the same or related activities.

(3) Upon receipt of a request from a contractor who has successfully completed a specialized education program meeting board standards, the board shall note the specialized education on the contractor’s licensing record as part of the contractor’s professional credentials. The board may remove a professional credential from the contractor’s licensing record if the contractor fails to complete continuing education or other requirements imposed by the entity issuing the credential for maintaining competency in the activity, if the requirements were clearly stated in writing and provided to the contractor by the entity.

(4) The board shall include professional credentials described in this section in releases of contractor licensing information by the board. The board shall adopt rules to permit the inclusion of professional credentials described in this section in advertising or other information holding forth to the public the qualifications of a contractor.
