How and who determines the validation of CE’s for this type of course.

To maintain the Certification, 15 hours of CE is required over two years.

Will this count for the CE’s required by Inachi Membership requirements.

I used to ask my friend Gerry these questions, but now need someone else to take his place.

Joe F. would that be you?:slight_smile:

Thanks

Congrats Marcel!!

Thanks Gerry, and it was a very difficult test that stressed me out half way through. :slight_smile:

Marcel,
Congrats!!!
I am certain iNachi will accept the course. Just enter the info in the continuing education log. I would suggest you contact Nick or Ben (Online Edcation Director) to determine how many CE units he will assign for it.

Congratulations Marcel! I agree Green Certifications and the need for Green Raters for Residential and Commercial is going to continue to grow
