JOURNEYMAN & APPRENTICE TRAINING
****Special Notice from Interim Director Kristen Spath****
Our staff is back in the office as of May 26th, 2020. Due to COVID, we had to cancel all Safety Training on the current schedule and reschedule all training. Because of COVID, we are only allowing 10 members at a time for Safety Training. All training will take place during the week, not on Saturday or Sunday. Also, all training will only be conducted in Albuquerque. Please click on the "953 Training" tab, click on the PDF link to access the new training schedule.
If you are planning on coming to the training site, a mask and 6ft social distancing are required. If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID, have been in contact with someone who has tested positive, or traveled out of the State please do not come to the training site.
For those of you who utilize Safety Incentive, there has been a 60-day extension to the Plan Year. This means we have two extra months to get training completed. Training will need to be completed by October 31st, 2020. Applications will be sent out on October 1st, 2020. Applications will be due by November 16th, 2020.
