The Carpenters International Training Fund’s primary concern is and will continue to be our membership and their eligibility to work and provide for themselves and their families. All of us are in uncharted territory with handling the ramification of the COVID-19 outbreak. We are aware that social distancing has led to a temporary suspension of training sessions here at the ITC as well as local areas, which prevents updated the qualifications and certifications needed to be on the jobsite. To counteract the effects of this, the CITF will be extending the qualification and certification credentials run through the CITF for up to 90 days for those that are set to expire during the closures. We will monitor the situation and reevaluate every thirty days and make further decisions as required. This extension will include Rigging and Building Envelope Certifications.
**Note: The Kirby Morgan Hat Technician is not controlled by the CITF and cannot be extended.
We will continue to keep you updated as much as we can as the need arises.
Should you have any questions or concerns about these extensions, please contact Royce Peters at 702-938-1111 Ext. 2028.
