It's time to renew your CSAA Five Diamond certification
The CSAA wants you to know that it's almost time to renew your Five Diamond designation. If you're a Five Diamond central station, that is. If you're not, then you don't need to worry. But seriously, if you are a central station that isn't Five Diamond certified, it might be something to consider. The CSAA and the online training administrator CMOOR Group make the training fun and engaging (I enjoyed it, anyway, and now have a really cool looking certificate that I'm going to frame and hang somewhere in my cube), and it will move your central station into the elite top percent of certified centrals out there. The renewal date for Five Diamond certification is April 30, 2009. Information on how to renew as well as a download of the renewal form can be found here. The form must be signed by a company officer, notarized (except for Canadian centrals), and accompanied by a copy of your 2009 UL Listing certificate or FM Approval good through 2010, as well as the completion certificates (printed from the online course) of any new operators hired since the initial certification. The CSAA will also be sending out renewal packets in the mail, so keep your eyes open. Further questions can be directed to Becky Lane at 703-242-4670 ext. 18.
