IMPORTANT NOTICE!! First and foremost- please be sure that we have the best email for you, and that you add education.unit@dca.nj.gov to your “safe senders” list to receive emails. Please spread the word- we can’t stress that enough. A reminder- all UCC/MD Continuing Education Programs are ONLINE ONLY for the spring 2020 semester. Please click this link to register: http://tiny.cc/UCConline We are also now providing a video version of the mandatory Framing Inspection class- B290- via the GoToWebinar platform on April 20, 2020. We are still loading the class, it should be available within the next couple of days. Please click this link to register: https://www.gotostage.com/channel/c4a86a143ca54b7eb3aa050a7d28307a Also, we have wonderful news! The 2020 Building Safety Conference of New Jersey has been rescheduled!! The Conference will be held at Bally’s Atlantic City from September 20th through September 23rd!! We will get another brochure out as soon as possible. We plan on keeping the same educational programs and, perhaps, adding a few more for the first of the 3 training days. The 3-day Conference was very well received and we would like to give our community the opportunity to take more training given the current state of affairs. If you have already registered for the Conference for the original dates (April 28-May 1), you can transfer your registration fee to the new dates or, if you can’t make the new dates, request a refund. To transfer, all we would need is the new registration form indicating a transfer of the fee (there will be a spot to indicate that); if you would like a refund, please email education.unit@dca.nj.gov- we will issue a refund as soon as we can. There were many registrations that did not get entered while we were making the decision to postpone the Conference, if you request the refund we may be able to simply return your payment. We all hope and wish the best to you and your families in this time of uncertainty, and also, hope to see you soon!
