It's no surprise that the trades are quickly regaining popularity as a viable career option. Especially in the United States, HVAC careers have seen a steady increase in demand as more people have been spending more time indoors. Whether you're looking to transition into this booming industry or renewing a license that you currently have, you'll need to review the continuing education requirements. RocketCert makes the process easier with online CE courses.

In this blog post, we’ll outline exactly what the license renewal process looks like for an Ohio HVAC license. That way, you know what to expect from your continuing education. If you want to further simplify the process, complete your renewal with RocketCert’s online Ohio HVAC CE courses. We’ll have you back to business in no time.

About Your Ohio HVAC License

With an Ohio HVAC license, there’s really not much you can’t do. With this license, you can:

  • Perform AC and refrigeration work
  • Operate an HVAC business
  • Advertise your services
  • Pull building permits
  • Request and pass inspections
  • Obtain commercial insurance
  • Bid on public projects
  • Bid on government projects

There’s no doubt about it; having an HVAC license increases your earning potential and gives you a competitive edge. So allowing your license to expire in Ohio can be a mistake with catastrophic results for your business.

When you got started, you probably remember choosing between an annual and a three-year license. Both types allow you to perform the same kind of work. The only difference is how often they need to be renewed.

It probably goes without saying, but the annual license should be renewed annually, and the three-year license should be renewed every three years.

How to Renew Your License

If you know how often you need to renew your Ohio HVAC license, you’ve already completed step one. The next step is to sign up for a continuing education course. No matter what type of license you have, the information that is covered will be the same:

  • Code changes (4 hours for annual, 12 hours for three-year)
  • Business (2 hours for annual, 6 hours for three-year)
  • Safety (2 hours for annual, 6 hours for three-year)

The code changes section of your continuing education can be completed online at your own pace. The business and safety sections will need to be completed during a live webinar. To participate in the webinar, you must have a webcam so that you can verify your identity.

If you fail to renew your license on time, there are penalties. For the annual license, you will have to take an extra 10 hours of continuing education; for the three-year license, you will have to take an extra 30 hours. Neither of these scenarios is ideal, so renew your license on time with the help of RocketCert.

  1. Purchase your educational content and sign up for a live webinar
  2. Complete your training
  3. Obtain your certificate of completion (as soon as you complete your course)
