Updates Effective September 2022:
-Helpers may only take Helper Class, OSHA 10/30 and classes held on Saturdays.
-All Journeyman & DJ Classes will require a $100 refundable deposit, due within 48 hours of reserving your space in class. The deposit will be accepted by cash only and must be submitted in-person at the Training Facility.Requiring refundable deposits for JM/DJ class assists the Local 5 Training Facility to efficiently allocate resources and ensures that members obtain access to necessary classes. Upon completion of the class, the $100 cash deposit will be refunded to the member.
-The Training Facility will no longer support TREEO based Backflow full certification or re-certification. All Backflow certifications and re-certifications will use the ASSE model, testing, and fees. Please note: As each Journeyman moves from a TREEO certification, to an ASSE (re)certification, an initial, full ASSE certification fee of $120 – $140 will be required. Subsequent ASSE re-certification ASSE fees are lower, in a range of $75-$95. Journeymen/DJs will be required to submit the fee within the first few weeks of the course.
