NATE Certification

Continuing Education Hours
​​​​​​​CE Hours

About CE Hours

NATE requires that every NATE-certified technician continues their education and remains up to date to certified standards.


Each technician must recertify every two years to maintain their certified status. During the recertification process, proof of 16 continuing education hours must be submitted with the renewal application and renewal fee paid directly to NATE.


HVACRedu.net makes this process simple. With our NATE recognized, and HVAC Excellence-accredited online classes, this requirement can be met with little trouble.


  • Choose a course that interests you. NATE does not you to take a specific subject.
  • Succesfully complete and pass the course online.
  • HVACRedu.net issues your course completion certificate satisfying the CE Hour requirement.
  • Each of the CE Hour series of courses is valid for at least 16 CE hours.

Self Directed and Online Training

This online program is an academic CTE (Career Technical Education) model. Student support is provided by key student support groups. Student Support Services and Faculty Instructors.


For the Employer (if applicable to your situtation)

  • Employer notification of less than satisfactory performance
  • Reporting to employer on student progress


For the Student

  • Registration within 1 business day of purchase
  • Issuance of Certificate of Completion upon successfully passing each section
  • Online Faculty- mentoring and technical topic assistance directly to the student
  • Business hour communications via email, chat, and phone


Training and Time Management

The online program model is called an ALN (Asynchronous Learning Network).


  • The study is self-directed an ONLINE
  • Done on your schedule at your time and place
  • Must be diligently pursued to complete before NATE expiration.


The program is self-directed online with a 60-day enrollment period.


The best way of getting the look and feel of the program is to schedule a live demonstration with our student registrar team.
