License Renewal Requirements
To renew an air conditioning and refrigeration contractor license, you must complete 8 hours of continuing education, including one hour of instruction in Texas state law and rules that regulate the conduct of licensees.
Continuing education courses must be completed before your license expires.
If you did not complete the required continuing education courses prior to your license expiration, you may still be eliible for a late renewal. For a late renewal, the continuing education courses must have been completed within the one year period immediately prior to the date of renewal.
Find a Course
Please see the list of approved continuing education providers to select a course.
Only courses approved by the department will be accepted. If you complete coursework from a non-approved provider, or if you complete the same course more than once, it will not count toward your required hours for license renewal.
Some providers offer online courses for continuing education. To see a listing of available courses, open the Continuing Education Providers page and select the "Offers Internet Courses" button on the web page to see only those providers that offer online courses.
Lookup Completed Courses
You may check your completed continuing education hours using the Continuing Education Course Search website. If your completed hours cannot be found, you should contact the provider first to ensure that the hours have been reported to TDLR.
Reporting continuing education hours is the responsibility of the continuing education provider. If a provider is not reporting your completed coursework within a reasonable amount of time, you may file a complaint with the Department to investigate.
Only courses approved by the department will be accepted. If you complete coursework from a non-approved provider, it will not count toward your required hours for license renewal.
Upon completion, your provider will issue you a course completion certificate. If you have questions, please contact your provider
You must keep a copy of any certificates of completion for a period of one year and provide them to the department upon request.
