CPWR COVID-19 Awareness Training

CPWR is offering live distance learning training utilizing the Zoom learning technology and is conducting training in two courses. The first course is titled COVID-19 Awareness for the Construction Industry. The goal of this 45-minute training is to “Increase health and safety awareness for Construction Workers who are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.” This training focuses on the NABTU and CPWR COVID-19 Standards for U.S. Construction Sites and discusses how employers can implement them on their jobsites.

The second course is titled ICRA/COVID-19 Awareness. This 6-hour training incorporates the COVID-19 Awareness for the Construction Industry training into CPWR’s online ICRA Awareness training. The goal of this training is to “Provide the necessary training to increase the health and safety awareness for construction workers who are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic; and understand the Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) procedures for properly performing healthcare or other occupied facility construction, maintenance and renovation tasks.” The Training is divided into two sessions and conducted over 2-days.

Below is a schedule of upcoming classes, directions on how to sign-up, and the system requirements to access the Zoom technology.
