Class Description

What is a CEC?

A Continuing Education Credit (CEC) is a vital component for maintaining IICRC certifications. To ensure certifications remain valid and up-to-date, certified technicians are required to accumulate continuing education credits (CECs). Ongoing education is mandatory for all certified technicians to be eligible for certification renewal and to prevent certifications from expiring due to improper maintenance.

How many CEC’s do I need?

1 Continuing Education Credit (CEC) corresponds to 1 hour of education, with specific requirements varying based on the type of certification:

  • IICRC Technicians: Certified Technicians are required to earn 14 CEC credits every four years.
  • Advanced Certifications (MTC, MSR, MWR): Professionals holding advanced certifications such as Master Textile Cleaner (MTC), Master Fire and Smoke Restorer (MSR), or Master Water Restorer (MWR) need to earn 14 CEC credits every two years.
  • IICRC Inspectors: Certified Inspectors must earn 14 CEC credits every two years.
