We are now offering a COVID-19 Preparedness Instruction and Quiz. Please click on the button below to begin


Out of an abundance of caution and due to the growing concerns about the COVID-19, (Coronavirus), we have made the decision to cancel apprenticeship classes scheduled for Saturday through the month of March 2020 even though we are not aware of any of our members who have tested positive for the Coronavirus.


These classes will be rescheduled later in the semester, once we have more information from local authorities on the progress of the virus. You will be notified of the new class dates when determined.


If you are having any flu like symptoms, you should not be going to work or school, which would potentially increase the risk of spread of this virus to other members.


In addition all of the District Meetings for the rest of the Month of March have been canceled.


Thank you for your cooperation in this very important matter and we will continue to keep you informed of changes, as information becomes available.
