    Does anyone partake in online trades courses? I recently received an email from OSI about such courses that will result in becoming a “certified installer.” I’m not sure what that amounts to just yet, as I’ve only barely started the process, but it certainly can’t hurt anything.

    If anyone is interested in looking into the OSI program, I can post a link. Any other online courses/certifications that might be interesting to the BTP group, please share!

    Hey Jon. It’s funny you asked because I had some extra time today and did these three:
    – Polished Concrete Overlayments 1 credit AIA LU/HSW
    – Creating a New path for Forest Products In Green Buildings 1 credit GBCI CEH , AIA LU/HSW
    – Masonry and LEED v4 1 credit AIA LU/HSW, GBCI CEH, LFA CEU

    I have been doing them off and on since Winter. here’s the link if anyone is interest. I really like the layout of the site.

    Thanks Chris! I wasn’t aware that such a site existed. Like I said above, OSI sent me an email abou their program, otherwise I wouldn’t have know about it either.

    Here’s the OSI link: http://lms.360-biz.com/osi_lms/lms/training_courses.php

    How do you actually get credit for doing those? I wish they gave other credits. I let my building inspector license lapse. The provide seminars all over the state and too often a bit out of the way.
    Unlike the architects,engineers and inspectors that attend I am not being paid for the day.

    They finally have expanded to some webinars but they have a limit. It’s the stupidest thing,how can you limit participation in a webinar?

    A lot of companies have online courses to become a “certified installer”. I have taken several online courses from Owens Corning, Certainteed, James Hardie, and a few others. I have also done some courses with site sponsor Construct-Ed and some courses through Hanley Wood.

    Thanks for the link. I’d be interested in this for sure. Always good to learn something new (that’s why I’m here!!) I did some poking around on the site you linked, but couldn’t find prices for the courses without registering with the site. How much do you pay per course here?

    Good links guys! I hope to take advantage of some of those when we slow down a bit through winter. I think it is good to keep refreshed of new and current recommendations from manufacturers and suppliers.

    We are required to take 7 hours of continuing education each year for our license. I have taken a couple of online courses for that, but i thought they were pretty much worthless. I may look into some certified installer courses , that sounds interesting, or just some to gain general knowledge.

    Thanks for some of the links. I already singed up for one and completed a course. I don’t have to do it but I always enjoy learning more.

    That’s great.

    I haven’t taken any online courses in a Kong time, but like mentioned before, I wouldn’t MI d spending some time in the winter learning a few new things.

    I attended an in person seminar/demonstration for Wedi for their products but doesnt qualify for certification. I think the rep wants to be out on the job for the first install. I know some of the decking products offer certification as well but once again want you to do it first.

    I can see a future where people look on the site of a product to find an installer and unless you have already installed one you wont be able to do it. Like …..you cant get the certifacte experience without the opportunity.
