CEU Credit/Certification Opportunities

The Rocky Mountain Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association offers several great opportunities to earn CEU credits.

Every year RMHPBA sponsors an annual conference and invites motivating, certified speaking professionals to share their knowledge and experiences with RMHPBA members on business-building strategies.  Members have the opportunity to earn up to CEU's from the National Fireplace Institute (NFI) and/or the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA).  Please look for CEU credit details for the 2008 RMHPBA Conference which will be provided at a later date with registration information.

In addition to earning CEU credit, RMHPBA sponsors an annual NFI Certification review and exam.  This two-day session provides review sessions for gas and wood certifications.  The pellet exam is typically held simultaneously.

Professionals who install or plan wood.gas hearth appliance systems are tested on the fundamental knowledge they need for their job.  The NFI Wood/Gas Exam covers the following: Fundamental Knowledge (25% of exam), Combustion, Heat/Heat Protection, Safety Guidelines & Consequences of Action, Construction Fundamentals, Installation Knowledge (75% of exam), Regulations and Instructions, Fuel Delivery, Appliance Requirements, Post Installation Inspection and Service.  The reference manual for this certification is the 2006 Hearth Reference Manual Wood/Gas Hearth Systems.
