Don't think that you're alone.....

As of today I have "0", nada, none, zilch.
'Tween Jan xx abd March I have to get 34 CEU's for EC Lic. Also, I have a CO course 2/9 to 5/xx, 1 nite, 3 hrs, 15 nites.....and someone is trying to talk me into Building RCS, 2 nites/wk, 3 hrs, 15 weeks, same time period. Then of course, there's also the Inspector/Sub-Code seminars; 6 @ full day.

I know what ya mean, I'm trying to squeeze in someplace....

All done with my 34, just one complaint the chairs were not too comfortable, and the lights were too bright, lost a lot of sleep.

... So there's my next question,... I've been told that because I took my 24 CEU's at last Code change,..and wasn't obligated to do so, (I was notified of this only AFTER taking the courses)because I only became licenced WITHIN that triennial period of 1999-2002, I can subtract 8 hours from this CEU course...is this true?? if so, I want a refund for the 8 hours...I'm confused!!

From what i understand there is no Banking of hours, they need to be taken during the period of issue date to renual date.

Read 13:31-1.7 (b) 2 FIRST, then read
13:31-1.7 (b) 3

OK, so IF ya don't have the book.....

The period that you obtain your Lic, you are excused/exempt from CEU requirements.

As to "banking" (3) says ....no more than eight credits into a succeding triennial period.

Usually I say "guys, stay awake during the 1-hour of Law"......

Merry Christmas.

Hi John,

And i thought i was late!

The 8 hr. lighting Design course was pretty good, they had that one in East Brunswick, morning was indoor lighting, and afternoon was outdoor, the guys that ran the course did a nice job.

Rat,

What courses did you sign up for?
