Via news conference Thursday, April 2nd at 5 PM, Governor Inslee extended the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order until May 4, 2020. While we were planning to return to the classroom on April 28, this will not be possible. The classes scheduled for April 28, 29, 30, and May 4 will all be rescheduled. We will be reaching out to our students that are registered for these classes within the next few business days to reschedule into May.
We understand this may impact plans and disrupt your schedule. We want you to know that you (and your health and safety) are our top priority during this time. We will not provide classes until we are sure that it is safe to do so, and will continue to monitor our employees and students in the classroom when we return to ensure your safety.
Due to the Proclamation issued by Governor Inslee on 3/23, our office will be closed until April 8, or as extended by any new proclamation, and our team is working from home. Our virtual office hours have been reduced, they are now 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Our office phone 253-277-8756 will be a message only line for the duration, and we will be responding to voice messages during office hours.
Rescheduling has been completed for all students that were signed-up for classes impacted by the social distancing order. We have enabled the registration form on Friday, 3/27, to allow new registrations for classes after the social distancing period (these are subject to change only if the social distancing order is extended.)
Classes on the calendar will proceed as planned. Classes that are shown on the calendar, are only removed from the registration form if full. Please choose another class date.
To ensure the safety of employees and customers, Verify Training LLC will temporarily close the training classroom located in Kent, WA. The closures, which begins at 5 p.m. Friday, March 20, will remain in effect until April 24, or until further directed by Washington State.
Customers who are able to use our online CEU classes or our online Electrician Practice Exams should continue to do so. These services will remain unaffected. Our office hours will also remain unaffected.
This closure is due to the caution surrounding the COVID-19 restrictions and is in compliance with the executive order issued by Governor Jay Inslee on March 13, 2020. Link to that HERE.
Electrician Trainees searching for CEU Credits to keep their certificate current should refer to the Electrical Currents Newsletter, Special Edition, issued March 20, 2020. Link to that HERE. Trainees may pay for their certificate renewal, for those that expire/renew after March 12, 2020, without having to complete their CEU credits until the restriction is lifted (expected date of April 24, 2020, or unless pushed out further) plus an additional 60 days, without penalty from inspectors or code enforcement. Supervision must still be maintained and the trainee must pay for their renewal.
All classroom courses, including boiler refresher, boiler prep-for-exam, EPA Refrigeration, Seattle Refrigeration Operator prep-for-exam, Journey Level Electrical CEU, and Trainee Level Electrical CEU are suspended until April 24. If you have classes scheduled and are registered for classes during that timeframe, please contact our office during business hours to reschedule.
Once the restriction on classroom courses has been lifted, we will be offering classes in the Kent classroom. We wish you all a safe and healthy next few weeks and hope to see you all again in May.
