Construction Industries Board Schedules Webcast

In an effort to communicate with the tradesmen regulated by the Oklahoma Construction Industries Board, the Chairman of that Board has scheduled a Webcast at Technology Centers around the state to provide training to tradesmen in or close to their own communities.

The Webcast will be broadcast Tuesday, April 30, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at 10 participating Technology Centers. There is no charge and participants will be able to talk directly to the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Board from any site they attend.

The Construction Industries Board was formed last year as a result of state legislation creating a nine-member board to regulate Oklahoma’s plumbing, electrical and mechanical trades, as well as building and construction inspectors.

“We will take advantage of the latest communications technology available through a Webcast to reach trades people who work during the day and otherwise would not have this opportunity,” explained Boyd West, administrator for the Construction Industries Board. “This will be a training conference to acquaint our trades people with the latest rules and regulations and explain the fee structure.”
