RETA Education

Sunday, March 29, 2020  

Good Afternoon RETA Members,

RETA’s mission is, “To enhance the professional development of industrial refrigeration operating and technical engineers”.

A national state of emergency has been declared and your RETA Executive Director, National President, and Board of Directors are taking a proactive approach for our members whose education may be hampered due to numerous restraints during this pandemic.  

With our mission statement in mind, RETA is offering each member three (3) online training courses at no cost during this time. Beginning on Monday, March 30th, RETA members may choose three titles from the RETA online training library to assist in easing credentialing requirements. Each of these titles includes an end of book test to eliminate the scramble for much needed Professional Development Hours (PDH).
If you have questions or want to get started on your courses, please call RETA HQ on Monday between 7:00AM - 5:00PM (PST) at 541-497-2955 or email or

In addition, RETA Authorized Instructors (RAIs) realize Chapter meetings are at a standstill and have graciously offered their services to provide a live stream presentation for bi-weekly Chapter meetings at no cost. Many of the RAIs are current or past Chapter Leaders, National Past Presidents, or have served on the National Board of Directors. Every RAI has the RETA mission statement in mind. They can provide 1–2 hour course material studies that meet the RETA credentialing requirements. For a current list of the RAIs please  visit the RETA website.

RETA thanks all of the RAI companies for their support which makes this accomplishment possible.

If you have any questions regarding chapter meetings, please contact RETA Chapter Liaison Dan Denton at 541-497-2955 or He will work with RETA Chapters and RAIs to schedule, promote, and execute the meetings.  

Stay safe, smart, and healthy.
