Boston Hot Works Certification Training Seminars

As time goes on, some things stay the same in the Sheet Metal trade, but other things change. As technology, equipment and codes continue to change, you need to keep up with the safest and most up-to-date procedures on the job. The Sheet Metal Workers Local 17 Training Center has a qualified staff of journeymen instructors to help you get the job done effectively and efficiently. For journeymen who want to keep up to date on the latest materials, methods, products and codes, the Sheet Metal Workers Local 17 Training Center offers a variety of advanced journey persons training courses. To accommodate the members’ work schedule, classes are offered in the evening, during the day and on weekends at our state-of-the-art facility in Boston.

Hot Works Certification Training Seminars

Sheet Metal Workers Local 17, Sheet Metal Workers J.A.T.C Local 17 and SMACNA Boston are working with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the Boston Fire Department, the Commission of the Inspectional Services Division (ISD) and the State Fire Marshall’s office to help certify all workers affiliated in the Sheet Metal Industry in the new required “Hot Works Certification” training.

The HOT WORKS ordinance is scheduled to go into place January 2017All employees on the job; as well as the person that pulls the permit, must have the Hot Works Certification.

Local 17 has 9 instructors that received the Hot Works Instructor Certification; Michael Burke, Michael Burns, Paul Daley, Daniel Flynn, Michael Gallant, Brian Harrington, Marc LaMonica, Barry Ryan and William Walsh. With these instructors we believe we will have no problem making sure all Local 17 members are certified in Hot Works by December 31, 2016.  The apprentices will receive this certification during their next scheduled class; starting next week with the current 4th years.
