Non-CREIA Approved Education

CREIA Associates, Certified and Master Inspectors must report and document to CREIA at least thirty (30) Continuing Education Credits (CECs) per membership year. At least ten (10) of those CECs must be CREIA-sponsored programs (Conference, Toolbox, online education, chapter events, etc..). Up to 20 CECs may be gained in a renewal year by any of the approved educational affiliate partners. Click here for the full CEC CREIA guidelines. 
You may take any of the education listed to obtain CECs, but the member is responsible for any additional costs outside of membership.

All courses are submitted annually and reviewed by the CREIA Education Committee.
