Georgia HVAC/ Conditioned Air CE & License Renewal Requirements

  • To become eligible for conditioned air license renewal, you need to take four hours of continuing education per year. That means you need eight total hours by the time your renewal is due. 

There are two exceptions to this rule.

  • The first says that if you’re a registered professional engineer, you’re exempt and don’t need CE. 
  • The second exception comes into play if it’s your first renewal cycle. At that point, you only need CE if you’ve had your license for a full year by the time renewal is due. In that case, you need four CE hours. If it’s been less than a year since you initially got your conditioned air contractor license, you’re off the hook. 

No matter how many hours you need, knocking them out should be relatively easy. The PLB has approved online CE providers (including TradesmanCE.com), which means you can take your hours from any device with an internet connection, whenever your schedule allows. 

In order for your hours to count toward the renewal requirement, they need to be related to conditioned air contracting, focusing on topics like:

  • Safety
  • Technological advances
  • Business management
  • Government regulations

One last thing: the PLB requires you to hang onto certificates of completion for your CE hours for at least five years. To make sure your paperwork would hold up in an audit, check that your certificate lists (as TradesmanCE's certificates of completion do):

  • The school, company, or organization that delivered the CE hours
  • The course title
  • An outline of the topics covered in the course
  • The number of hours you completed
  • The date you took the course
  • The location you took it (again, online is okay)
  • Something from the CE provider indicating you completed the course

To make things easier for you, we issue a certificate of completion each time you finish one of our courses. 

 

Other license requirements

Beyond the CE, the only other thing you need to do to renew is pay the $75 fee. You should get an email from the state eight weeks before your conditioned air license is set to expire. 

But don’t wait on that to knock out your CE. That way, even if the email ends up in spam, you won’t have any trouble meeting the requirements to renew your contractor license. 

Don’t forget, you need to renew your Georgia conditioned air contractor license — and have completed eight hours of CE — every two years.
