When it comes to MA Hoisting Continuing Education, you certainly have plenty of options with several fly-by-night providers who don’t even offer a phone number. That can get very frustrating when you require simple technical support. At-Leisure was the very first company in MA to offer online continuing education for hoisting engineers, and promises the best experience possible to our customers. There is a reason we are the Preferred Vendor of the American Rental Association of Massachusetts.
Submitting your renewal through the state's website is complex. Go ahead and try it for yourself… we’ll wait. So we developed our own user-friendly system that does the thinking for you. We are proud to say, we are the only MA Hoisting Continuing Education provider to offer this benefit to customers. Please note, it can take 3-7 days after submission for the state to initiate your renewal process.

Some continuing education providers require you to pass a test at the end of the course - we do not. So relax! You're about to embark on the easiest course experience possible.
Our website was built on one foundation: ease of use! We didn't integrate a random course player from a 3rd-party. Instead, our software is custom built to offer you the best user experience possible. To catch a glimpse of our course player, and learn about its benefits, click here.
We didn't take the cheap route; we paid for a professional reader in a studio to provide you with optional audio narration. No computer voice. No echo. Just a soft, pleasant voice to read to you, if you choose.

Choose between email and/or text notification.
You don't need to be a computer expert to use our platform. Our entire site was built with the comprehension that "ease of use" is rule number one. Still, you may decide you want some help, and we are a quick phone call away. We receive a LOT of positive feedback for our customer support, so rest assured, you're in good hands.
Courses are not timestamped. Try us out, and if you are not satisfied with the experience, you will receive a full refund as long as you have not completed the course!
HERERecent changes to Massachusetts Hoisting Continuing Education requirements were announced November 2016. Now, continuing education requires:
- regulatory training (law) to be completed once
- equipment specific training to be completed for each grade of license
The following grades require 2-hours of regulatory training (law) and 2-hours of equipment specific:
- 1A, 1B, 1C, 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D, 3A
The following grades require 1-hours of regulatory training (law) and 1-hours of equipment specific:
- 1D, 4B, 4C, 4D, 4E, 4F, 4G
For example, if you hold a 2A, 4G license, you will need to complete 5 hours of continuing education:
- 2-Hours regulatory training (which covers both 2A and 4G requirement)
- 2-Hours equipment specific for 2A
- 1-Hours equipment specific for 4G
Your continuing education credits may be completed at any time. The only restriction is when you are allowed to submit your certificate of completion to the state for renewal. About 30-45 days prior to your license expiration date, the state will send you a renewal form. At this time, you may submit your continuing education certificate to the state for renewal.
- If you have misplaced your renewal form, or you are within the 30 day window and have not received it from the state, you may request a new one HERE.
- If your license has expired, you have a year grace period in which you may renew your license without penalty. In this time, your license is considered expired and cannot be used until renewed. After the year grace period, you will need to retake the state exam to get your license back.
- There are two ways to submit to the state; electronically or via standard mail. Your renewal form will have instructions on how to do both.
