We have partnered with two nationally recognized foundations to reduce education costs and make it easier for our members to stay current with their certifications.
An easy way to earn CEU's is to retain your NFI certification. This can be done when it's convenient for you through Hearth Online.
In addition to Hearth Online, RMHPBA hosts at least one NFI Certification review and exam session annually. The two-day session provides review sessions for gas, wood and pellet certifications, and may include opportunities for extra training like marketing and sales.
