August Education Class changed due to Instructor's passing

We received word of the un-timely passing of the SAS Instructor for our August classes. Understandably, SAS has asked to re-schedule the intended class to a later date.  We have agreed and have changed the class to Basic Electronics & Access Control presented by Lowell Roberts. All the fees, and specially scheduled events will go on as planned, including the swap meet. The SAS classes will be offered at a later date to be determined. Check the Educational Opportunities section for details.

Process changed for ODOL license renewals

ODOL licensing renewal dates changed beginning last July 1st, 2013. The Company license and the Individual license renewal dates are no longer the same. The individual license renewal appears to be the birthday month of the individual, while the Company renewal is some months later so as to split the load up. Please check your individual and Company (if applicable) licenses to determine your renewal dates, then visit the ODOL website and print out the individual or Company renewal forms, fill them out as specified with the appropriate other items required ,including necessary fees, and submit them (failure to renew prior to expiration date causes the fees to double, so don't delay). To ensure the new licenses are received before the current one expires, plan on submitting them a couple of months early if possible.
