Med Gas & State Plumbing License Renewal Information - (9/18/2013)

Medical Gas installer renewals:

After July 1, 2012 all med-gas installer renewals have needed to be taken at a proctored site. The 2012 edition of NFPA 99 has been released so there will no longer be the automatic renewals of the 2005 edition that have been going on for the last several years. We have updated everyone whose card was to expire in 2012. Anyone whose card renews after December 31st, 2012 will have to take this written, proctored test after a mandatory 4 hour review class to continue their certification. There will be a one year grace period for this to happen, however, keep in mind that if you are not current to the edition code that you are installing or if a particular job requires you to be updated to the new edition, or your certification date has expired, you will not be allowed to work on those jobs. The first two classes were very successful and a sign-up list is being kept for anyone wishing to take the next class. I will be scheduling more classes later in 2013 so there will be other opportunities to get this continuity but not many. This is an

ANSI/NITC requirement that has been passed on to all locals and certifying agencies.

State license renewals:

 Your Nevada Board of Plumbing Examiners (NBOPE) licenses must be renewed before they become due in 2013 by attaining 8 trade related continuing education credits (CE’s) or by taking a written test through NITC. The cost for either option is $30.00 and will renew your license for a period of 3 years. The Local 350 JATC is an authorized training center to offer these CE’s and we will be giving classes to not only meet the training requirement but also to keep our members up to date with all the changes that are in the 2012 code edition while also providing some information on local code amendments. Information on classes will be posted at the main hall, training center, on the website at: ualocal350.org, in future newsletters, and during monthly union meetings.

For those who are unable to attend the classes, you may take the online re-certification test through NITC (www.nationalitc.com) by calling 1-877-457-6482 and asking for Arcelia or Diana who will give you a PIN and Password to log onto their test-trac and register to take the 25 question test online from your home. (You will need to pay the $30.00 test fee by credit card at this time.) Currently this on line test is to the 2006 edition of the UPC Code which will change soon.  Check here for any updates on which edition the test is updated to.

For those who are receiving expiration notifications in the mail that contain Testrac ID and PIN numbers and try to access their accounts, if no test is available when entered, call Arcelia or Diana at the number above Monday - Friday 6:30-4:30.  If taking the test outside these hours or on weekends and you encounter any problems, you may call Diana at 1-909-518-8076 and she can help you get access.
