You can now earn NATE Continuing Education Units or hours (CEUs) when you complete Interplay Learning HVAC courses.
This will help you gain the 16 CEU hours you need to re-certify every two years.
HVAC/R technicians with two or more years of HVAC/R experience can earn installation or service certification in one or more of the 21 specialty areas offered by NATE. Certification requires that the technician passes both the core exam and an installation or service exam for a specialty. But then, you need to earn 16 CEU hours every 2 years.
How to find the CEUs for each course:
From the Course Catalog page, click the course name. This will bring up the Course Description page. Here, you'll see a Continuing Education Units section which lists the NATE credentials that match the content of the course.
Once you complete the course:
The ‘My Dashboard’ screen shows you a growing list of all the Certificates of Completion you have earned.
If you click on a Certificate title, it appears as a pop-up. This will display the Specialties associated with that course, as well as the hours earned. You can download and print the Certificate when you want to send proof in to NATE for your re-certification.
