CEU’s attached to our State License program: Please keep in mind that you are required to obtain 30 hours of continued education classes every 3 years. Whether it be 10 hours a year or all 30 hours in the last year. These classes must be approved by the State of California OSFM and to date there are only 3 organizations approved, them being the 3 unions in CA. You won’t be able to go online or go outside the local to fulfill these requirements. The classes are specifically approved for the Local to train. This being said, it puts us in a spot to hold a lot of classes to provide you the opportunities you need. We need you to take this seriously and get some hours taken care of each year. If too many members wait until the last year to try and jam all 30 hours in, this will be problematic. If you call and the class is full please don’t get discouraged, keep calling back. You helping us is the best way we can help you.

As of Jan 1, 2019, the Sprinkler Fitter Certification has gone into effect 100%. Please do your part and get into the habit of showing your card to Inspectors, Building Engineers, Building Security, or anyone asking you for an ID or credential’s. Be proud of that card and know that a lot of hard work went into getting that regulation established. The more we show the card without being asked, the more important it becomes, and the more questions will be asked of those who don’t show their card.
