14 CECs (hours) every four years.

The continuing education requirement ensures ongoing training within the industry.

Please visit  iicrccecevents.org.

Yes, you can earn CECs in a few ways:

Registration at the IICRC booth during applicable trade shows receives two CEC hours.

Registration for educational tracks held at conventions or trade shows are awarded based on hours attended. Each hour of training equals one hour of continuing education hours. The maximum number of hours one can receive is 14. CEC hours do not carry over once the maximum number of CECs are reached.

Please note: Documentation is required to award CECs and varies from event.

You can email your Continuing Education Certificate of Completion to renewals@iicrcnet.org.
