Technicians attending courses for CEH credit are required to submit certificates of completion for any education class attended that is not a NATE-recognized course.

NOTE: Instructors can earn 16 hours of continuing education hours by submitting proof of their classroom instructional time. Click here to download the Recognized Provider Training Handbook.
