PRWA Training Event Safety: The safety of our attendees is of utmost importance. Fully vaccinated Trainers and Attendees can choose not to wear masks.

Did you know that many PRWA courses may qualify for Professional Development Hours (PDH), towards Universal Construction Code (UCC) continuing education requirements, or for Operator Contact Hours (CH) in other states? In these cases you, the professional, determine and report which courses qualify and pay any required submission fees. PRWA can provide you the necessary course documentation for record-keeping and reporting upon request. PDH is for engineers, geologists and land surveyors. For UCC continuing education, PRWA qualifies as an approved PA Labor and Industry Training Provider under category #5, Continuing Education Providers. And for CH in other states, each state has its own criteria. Typically, states require the PRWA course flyer showing the course title, description, date and location, and your course completion certificate. Some states also require the course agenda/timeline and other details which are available from PRWA upon request. If you have questions about this or need documentation, please, contact Joel Jordan.
