The Refrigerating Engineers & Technicians Association (RETA) is an international society of individuals and companies involved in the design, operation and service of industrial refrigeration systems. Its purpose is to provide education and training, as well as networking benefits, to both experienced operators and those who have recently entered this rapidly expanding field.
Our annual conference and exhibition includes a robust program that includes technical sessions in the areas of compliance, engineering, manufacturing and operations. Hands-on sessions will also be available, as well as manufacturer-specific Sessions.
Certification and Training - Attendance accrues RETA professional development hours (PDH) applicable to maintaining RETA certification. Earn up to 15 RETA PDH from the Conference program or up to 28 RETA PDH with a combination of the Refrigeration Review Course and Conference program. RETA PDH may be applied toward CIRO, CARO, CRES and RAI certification maintenance.
Exhibitors, Guest Programs and more - Besides educational tracks and the review and certification program, attendees will have an opportunity to discuss and exchange information, meet vendors in the field through the exhibition & Hot Point Tracks, and attend events like the RETA Business Lunch, Rumble, & Awards Banquet.
