ROLLING INTO LANCASTER: CSIA’s new work vehicle (shared with our counterparts at NCSG) made its debut this week. “Work trucks” are a great way to promote your Chimney Safety Institute of America certification. It’s advertising on wheels, and we practice what we preach with our newly arrived vehicle:
CONVENTION REMINDERS:The 2015 NCSG Convention [click here for the Feb. 18-21 seminar schedule] will offer as many as 17 CEUs to participants. NOTE: CEU certificates will be e-mailed to attendees after the convention is over. Also, convention preparation means a reduction in online learning and online testing for the remainder of the month.Read more here.
