Online Classes

The Training Fund is now able to provide members classes through remote learning led by a live instructor, including many of the courses members need for the Local Law 196 deadline coming on September 1 (Site Safety Training).

This remote learning is done on the Zoom video platform with an Instructor leading the class, as though you were in the classroom. In these courses, you can see everyone in the class, ask and answer questions, just like if you were in a classroom. You can do this from the comfort of your home and using your webcam-equipped home computer, laptop, tablet, iPad, iPhone, Android, or compatible smartphone. All of these devices work on the Zoom platform. For compliance with state and federal regulations, classes will be recorded and students’ video and audio are required to be enabled at all times.
