Chapter Sponsored Evening Classes
PHCC of MA
Local Chapters Host Session 6 Night Classes
PHCC of MA Chapters will host State Plumbing Board Continuing Education Session 6 classes in the evening starting this fall. If you are a chapter member or an employee of a chapter member, these classes were scheduled especially for you! Non-members are welcome if space is available.
Attendees will have an opportunity to enjoy dinner with members, share ideas, and fulfill the State's continuing education requirement for year four. Each evening class provides 3 hours of instruction and runs during the hours of 5:00-9:00 p.m. to allow time for check-in, dinner and class instruction. If you are a licensed plumber, you will need to attend both evening classes to obtain the 6 hour credits. Gas Fitters need only attend class on the first night to earn the 3 credit hours.
Conducted by PHCC of MA instructors, the special evening series will include the mandatory gas fitting and plumbing material and provide required continuing education credits for Master and Journeyman Plumbers and Gas Fitters. See Chapter Class Dates on the registration form. Register for a Chapter class by submitting the Chapter registration form with payment or call the CE Hotline, 781-843-3840. (Sorry, online registration is unavailable for chapter classes.)
