CanNACHI’s Continuing Education requirements are very straightforward. Members must complete a minimum of 30 hours of continuing education credits (CEC) per calendar year, the attendance of which must be verifiable.
One exception to this rule is for new members, who do not need to complete any continuing education in the first calendar year they join CanNACHI.
CanNACHI’s qualifying subject matter is found in approved course providers section. Including CEC’s earned for other inspection associations, construction seminars, and code enforcement training. Courses, classes, and seminars can qualify but must be submitted to CanNACHI for board approval. Example: A mold seminar that lasts 2 hours qualifies as 2 hours of continuing education. CanNACHI Chapter meetings qualify for 1 hour of continuing education (even though they last longer).
