Education & Training
For all licensees (except apprentice and trainee registration licenses) you will need to show proof of 3 hours of code update every year totaling 6 hours per 2 year renewal cycle.
*** For fuel gas fitter renewals prior to December 31, 2016 we will continue to accept 3 hours of code update and 5 hours of related continuing education (the 5 hours must have been completed prior to July 1, 2015) ***
NATE (Approved from December 2007- July 2014 for in-state applicants). Out of state applicants certified in NATE shall be deemed qualified for the licensure examination in NH if the NATE Certification was obtained when they were employed as a fuel-gas fitter outside of NH.
Testing for Expired and Inactive Fuel Gas and Plumbing Licensees
A fuel gas fitting license holder or plumbing license holder who submits an application for late renewal shall be subject to all requirements for new applicants. For anyone seeking to renew their NH fuel gas fitting license or plumbing license 365 days or more past the expiration date, an exam is offered through our educational providers in lieu of the 140 hour courses (fuel gas only). Successful candidates may then re-apply for the license through our office.
There are no additional continuing education requirements for lapsed licensee's other than the Lapsed License Exam.
