Several states, including Nevada, Oregon, Washington, California and Texas, require installers to pursue continuing education to maintain installer licenses. Now, installers in those states have a new way of receiving that education. The International Sign Association has been named a Preferred Education Provider by the International Code Council.
A number of ISA courses have been approved for continuing education unit credits. ISA will seek additional approvals as new courses in regulatory, safety or electrical areas are developed.
All of the ISA courses are online, on-demand, self-paced and available 24 hours a day. Courses start at just $25. Companies may purchase a company package, which offers unlimited courses with pricing based on the number of employees enrolled. At least two of the courses are available in Spanish.
The ICC continuing education credit program is just one way that ISA is working to build the sign, graphics and visual communications industry through education and training. Companies in states not requiring ICC continuing education credits still may benefit from training that targets important areas of development in the industry, including sales, management, project management, design, marketing and fabrication.
