Industry Certification - Is it Right for You?
The purpose of the meeting is to simply discuss the need or lack thereof of NFI, CSIA or other certifications. Our online speaker will be Rick Vlahos, National Fireplace Institute.
We'll be looking at both the pros and cons of these programs. Are you NFI or CSIA Certified? If not, why haven't you become certified? Did you know the Construction Contractor's Board requires proof of continuing education to retain CCB registration? Certification CEU's qualify to meet the required hours, so we will discuss that as well.
For this meeting, people can participate online and not be there. We will be able to Skype you in, but anyone wanting to participate with us on line MUST let us know in advance. Attendees will bring an i-Pad or notebook so we can Skype in a fellow OHPBA member. If you would like to participate this way, contact us at 503-585-8254.
Registration is free - breakfast on your own - but please RSVP so we know who is attending!
