Effective January 1, 2023, the UBC Scaffold Erector Qualification and Rigger and Signaler Qualification will no longer have a grace period. Both Qualifications are good for 4 years and if it expires, the entire class will need to be retaken. A Refresher class will need to be taken prior to the expiration in order to renew the Qualifications. Please keep track of your classes and put reminders in your calendar on your phone at least 6 months prior to the expiration.

The school sends out notices of upcoming expirations on a quarterly basis, but some people have the wrong information on file. Please make sure that your contact information is up to date with the school’s database and with your Local. We only send out information that is important to our members so please open the email when you see it in your Inbox.
