If your continuing ed credits are coming due, here are a few of the topics that you can expect from your PDH Contractor’s Academy courses:
#1: There are Significant Energy Changes
If you’ve taken continuing ed courses before, you already know that standards can and do change. That’s part of the reason for professional development hours, to keep you informed about what’s happening in the industry. The most recent developments reflect major changes in the Energy Code for low-rise residential, commercial and high-rise residential buildings.
#2: Fall Protection is a Big Deal
Falls account for a lot of workplace injuries, especially in construction. Our courses focus heavily on fall protection, particularly the different types of equipment and practices to prevent falls from happening. The materials that you’ll study are in line with OSHA’s Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations. These regulations apply to all workers except inspectors or investigators.
#3: Safety in General is a Very Big Deal
Falls might account for a lot of injuries, but safety in general is critical for everyone on a construction site. In our continuing education courses, you’ll learn about personal protective equipment, assessing hazards and safety training in the workplace. You’ll also get fine-point safety information about the use of certain tools.
#4: You’ll Learn More about Worker’s Compensation
You probably have a general idea about how worker’s compensation functions. But through PDH Academy continuing education, you’ll get important information about why it exists, how to use it, and what to expect if a claim is filed.
#5: Best Business Practices are Covered
Continuing ed isn’t just for working safely on a construction site. Part of our course materials dig into business practices, which helps you understand more about operating or managing a construction business. You’ll learn how to enforce a claim for unpaid work, get tax information, find out about managing inventory and labor, calculating business expenses and more.
#6: We Simplify Florida Construction Law Compliance
Part of business is complying with local regulations, and your continuing education coursework helps make this confusing topic simpler. We cover payments, what’s prohibited in a contract and job site, and what happens when a contractor knowingly violates policy. It also clarifies disciplinary guidelines.
