TRAINING VERIFICATION CARDS PROVIDE REAL-TIME REPORTS FOR UBC MEMBERS
The UBC’s Carpenters International Training Fund (CITF) provides real-time training, certification, and qualification reports for UBC members through Training Verification Cards. The Training Verification Cards (TVC) help UBC members track their current training and stay eligible for future training. The individual, wallet-sized card includes a QR code which, when scanned, displays verification for each member’s training, certifications, and qualifications. The TVC also displays the member’s name, UBC ID number, local union, craft, classification (journeyman, apprentice), status, and paid through date.
One scan of the code gives employers a report from a database that is updated as soon as a member completes a course or earns a certification/qualification. Please contact your Local UBC Training Center with any questions on this program. Click here for a directory of UBC-affiliated Training Centers.
