Soderholm & Associates believes in the power of knowledge. Knowledge allows our agency to provide added value to our customers, on behalf of the manufacturers we represent. Sharing that knowledge with our engineer, wholesaler, and contractor customers allows them to better serve their own clients. When knowledge-driven value is created, we all perform more effectively — and more profitably!


In the spirit of sharing knowledge with our industry partners, Soderholm & Associates is offering a multitude of contractor CEU credit courses. We hold these courses in our training facility and utilize experienced Soderholm & Associates staff as instructors. Participation in these classes allows MN-licensed contractors to gain State of MN-certified CEU credits (both “Technical” and “Code”), which are required for license renewal.

The following courses are approved for continuing education credit by the MN Department of Labor and Industry:

  • High Efficiency Water Heater Service & Technical Training – 4 credits (Technical)
  • Cross Connection Control & Backflow Prevention 101 – 5 credits (3.5 Code/1.5 Technical)
