REMINDER:  Let’s help out the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
Bring a non-perishable food item with you.

*The case for approval of education credits hinges on the relevance
of the material covered.  For example, CFAA may limit continuing
education credits from the FTN to FIRE ALARM related topics only.
If you are engaged in the testing and inspection of other
life safety equipment you may still want to consider
attending even though they may not provide you with
credit for the course.
