Texas summers are known for producing some of the highest temperatures in the United States. Naturally, this means that HVAC and refrigeration contractors are in high demand across the state.

If you have already obtained your license, you know firsthand the importance that quality HVAC and refrigeration technicians have in their communities. To continue operating your successful business and serving your customers, you’ll need to stay on top of the requirements for renewal.

If you have questions about how to renew your air conditioning or refrigeration license in Texas, you’ve come to the right place. In this post, we will cover why, how, and when to renew your license. And if you have any remaining questions by the end, you can always give RocketCert a call to learn more. 

The Importance of Keeping Your License Renewed 

In Texas, ACR licenses expire every year. To some, this may seem like a major inconvenience. But with RocketCert, you’ll be surprised by how easy and convenient renewal can be. 

To complete your renewal, you’ll have to complete eight hours of continuing education and then submit proof of your finished coursework to the state. 

RocketCert courses aim to be educational and helpful, rather than dry and pointless. Not only will you stay up-to-date with industry codes and regulations, but you will also learn more about what it takes to run a successful business.

Air conditioning and refrigeration technicians need to have a firm understanding of mechanical, fuel, and gas codes. By nature, the industry can be dangerous. It’s vitally important that you pay attention to and learn from your continuing education courses. 

Purchase a Course

When it’s time for your license renewal, you can attend a scheduled in-person course. Or, you can take the convenient route and purchase an online course that you have 24/7 access to. 

With the latter, you can complete your continuing education at your own pace and on your own timeline. As a busy business owner, we know that kind of convenience probably appeals to you.

Complete Your Training

As outlined above, eight hours of continuing education are required to renew an air conditioning or refrigeration license in Texas. But what, exactly, is covered in an eight-hour course?

For starters, you’ll spend an hour reviewing the Texas laws and regulations surrounding air conditioning and refrigeration. From there, you’ll spend the next seven hours studying one or more of the following topics: 

  • Business practices
  • Technical requirements
  • Administrative code
  • Ethics
  • Texas Occupations Code

Once you have completed your training with RocketCert, you can instantly complete your certificate. The next business day, our support staff will contact the state for you. 

We want you to be able to continue operating your successful business, and we are here to support you in your efforts.
