The CSL (Construction Supervisor) 12 hour Continuing Education Course
As of July 1, 2013 the Massachusetts Construction Supervisor needs 12 hours of Continuing Education Credits for their unrestricted license. Many of those in this trade will at some time be working on housing (and soon to be commercial) that may contain lead paint. As of April 22 of 2010 the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) requires that individuals and companies be trained and certified on the Renovation Repair and Painting (RRP) rule. On July 9, 2010 the Massachusetts Department of Labor Standard took over this regulation and has been rigorously enforcing the lead safe standard. Taking this course will help avoid fines and job shut downs due to non-compliance.
Topics covered in this program are split into two separate subjects. The first includes a thorough knowlege of the RRP regulations, including when the rule applies, who can be on the job, and your duty to the customer and general public. For those contractors that will require to be licensed as a Lead Safe Renovator Contractor, applications and help completing them are supplied. The second topic of Energy is simplified for the Construction Supervisor and information is supplied for those that wish to understand the most common home Alternative Energy; Solar. The importance of having a CLS involved to protect the home owner from damage of improper roof or ground installation is stressed.
This course is 12 hours and is offered from 8AM to 5PM on day one and 8AM to 12PM. While many CSL 12 hour consume two six hour days this is only a day and a half! Please consult the course schedule for dates
