MABOI Membership, I am reviewing the results of the recent survey, specifically training. Based on the responses, I wanted to make a couple of comments:
- Each and every MABOI seminar earns you ICC CEUs toward renewing your certifications. MABOI is an association based on education, and we understand education needs to be beneficial to retaining certifications. If we offer a course in which we cannot offer CEUs, that course will be indicated so in the flyer.
- Each and every MABOI seminar earns you “Preferred Provider” CEUs toward renewing your certifications. The ICC now requires a certain percentage of your courses used to renew your certification to be “preferred provider”. MABOI is a “preferred provider” and will complete all paperwork necessary to obtain approval for the course. Every course sponsored by MABOI so far in 2016 was taught by the ICC; therefore, the ICC is the preferred provider that registered the course. The July firestopping class will be the first 2016 course where MABOI is the preferred provider.
- The focus of the 2015/2016 education seminars has been the transition from 2009 to 2015 codes. As we finish the 2016 year, many of the courses offered will continue to be focused on the transition from 2009 to 2015. Next year, we will be focusing on some other areas specifically and providing some training related to more specific topics.
As Education Chair, I am always open for questions or recommendations.
