This class satisfies the 3 hours of required training based on Session 11 for gas fitters. It provides 3 of the 12 hours of continuing education required during this license renewal period. It is designed to be combined with the 3-hour class on Session 11 for plumbers for plumbing licensees with gas fitting to fulfill the 6 hours of training on Session 11 to renew that license.

The class covers the Plumbing Board and the resources available online for licensees, then presents a step-by-step tutorial on the new E-Licensing portal. An extensive training in the hazards of Crystalline Silica, its harmful effects, and how to mitigate the risk is based on materials prepared by OSHA and the CDC. The class finishes by exploring several topics selected by the Board because they have seen recent changes or where mistakes are often made, including Venting Using Plastic Pipes; Used Equipment; Carbon Monoxide Detectors; Scope of Licenses & Licensing Waivers.

There is a final exam with this course.
