Did your NATE certifications expire this year? Did you renew? Note that recertification is not automatic. You must submit a recertification application and the appropriate fees to recertify. But with our new lower recertification fee starting at just $25, it’s easier and cheaper than ever.

Just visit www.mynate.org or call us at 877-420-6283 to see if you already have the 16 training hours needed to renew today for just $25 for the first certification, and $5 for each additional certification. Even if your certification expired months ago, we’re accepting applications until December 31, so don’t delay.
