Certifications Must be Renewed by June 30 Each Year. Here’s How to Get your CECs!

Posted on 05/17/2022

Air Systems Cleaning Specialist (ASCS) certifications must be renewed by June 30 each year, and NADCA requires six (6) Continuing Education Credits (CECs) for ASCS renewal. Wondering how you can earn those CECs? We have lots of options!

Annual Meeting & Exhibition Webinar Bundles

To earn required CECs, many technicians attend our Fall Technical Conference or Annual Meeting & Exhibition each year, where they can earn all the CECs required for certification renewals. But for techs who can’t make it to an event, we offer recordings of CEC-qualifying sessions as a bundled webinar package that’s available for purchase, giving you all six required CECs! You can watch the CEC session recordings at any time that's convenient for you. Then, you’ll take a short multiple-choice quiz, and if you get a passing score, you’ll earn CECs required for ASCS renewal!

The 33rd Annual Meeting & Exhibition Webinar bundle includes:

  • Quantifying Coil Cleaning
  • Air Duct Cleaning after Fire Restoration
  • Financial Implications of Your Safety Program

So, even if you couldn’t travel to the 33rd Annual Meeting & Exhibition in March 2022, you can still experience some of the excellent content that was delivered to our in-person attendees — and earn CECs in the process. It really can’t get much easier!

NOTE: Our 2021 Annual Meeting webinar bundle is also available at the link above.

The Annual Meeting webinar bundle is also available as a ‘Train-the-Trainer’ program. This means you can purchase the bundle once for yourself and complete the quiz after reviewing each recording. Then, you can utilize the recordings and the supporting session materials to train your own techs!

Read DucTales!

Last year we launched a new program for earning CECs simply by reading a specific article in each designated edition of DucTales magazine, and then taking (and passing) a short quiz. For example, the cover story in the January/February 2022 edition, “Sources of Contamination,” is worth one (1) CEC. This program is available to members only.

NADCA offers lots of webinars on a variety of topics that can be taken on-demand for training and educational purposes, and to earn CECs toward ASCS renewal. Simply select the webinar you wish to purchase, view the webinar and corresponding materials, and then pass a short quiz. You will automatically be awarded your CECs after passing the quiz.

Reminder: It is the responsibility of the ASCS certification holder to renew certification by June 30th, annually. This includes earning six CECs in addition to paying the $95 renewal fee. 

Is it Time to Renew Your CVI?

Unlike the ASCS, the CVI certification only needs to be renewed every three years. Is yours up for renewal this year? If so, be sure to take the CVI renewal quiz before June 30. That’s it... there’s nothing more that you need to do to renew your CVI.
