One of the biggest benefits of being a member is the training available to you. It is the training that sets us apart from the competition and I encourage you to take advantage, especially if you find yourself out of work. Be sure to check the schedule for the classes.
We have posted the new training schedule on our Upcoming Classes page. Please take a look and let Jerry know which classes you want to take. You can also download and print a copy. Remember: training builds the trade.
