Other FAQs on this designation:
Will I receive a wall certificate or wallet card?
This certification will have a wall certificate available online.
Since you will already have a Code Council certification when you achieve this designation, you will already have a wallet card. The wallet card will be updated with the new designation.
How do I renew this designation?
Your certificate renews every three years, and during that time you’ll need to maintain continuing education units (CEUs) to prepare for renewal.
Please note, you will need to renew this combination designation in addition to your other certifications (including your 79 Residential Energy Inspector/Plans Examiner).
You do not have to keep your 79 certification active to keep your new ECS certification valid. If you’d prefer to let your 79 certification lapse and only keep renewing the ECS, this is acceptable, but you do have the option to maintain both.
