Boston Hot Works Certification Training Seminars

Hot Works Certification Training Seminars

Sheet Metal Workers Local 17, Sheet Metal Workers J.A.T.C Local 17 and SMACNA Boston are working with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the Boston Fire Department, the Commission of the Inspectional Services Division (ISD) and the State Fire Marshall’s office to help certify all workers affiliated in the Sheet Metal Industry in the new required “Hot Works Certification” training.

The HOT WORKS ordinance is scheduled to go into place January 2017All employees on the job; as well as the person that pulls the permit, must have the Hot Works Certification.

Local 17 has 9 instructors that received the Hot Works Instructor Certification; Michael Burke, Michael Burns, Paul Daley, Daniel Flynn, Michael Gallant, Brian Harrington, Marc LaMonica, Barry Ryan and William Walsh. With these instructors we believe we will have no problem making sure all Local 17 members are certified in Hot Works by December 31, 2016.  The apprentices will receive this certification during their next scheduled class; starting next week with the current 4th years.

All classes will take place at Local 17 J.A.T.C,, 1181 Adams Street, Dorchester, MA.   The following dates and times will be available for your employees to sign up to take the class:


January 17th 11:30am to 2:30pm
