TVC Card

What is a Training Verification Card (TVC)?

A Training Verification Card (TVC) provides real-time training reports for UBC members. In addition, 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. 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.

The TVC also displays the member’s name, UBC ID number, local union, craft, classification (journeyman, apprentice), status, and paid through date. For more information on the Training Verification Cards, CLICK HERE to download the TVC Fact Sheet.

How can I get a Training Verification Card or request a new one?

If you lost your card or need a new card, please contact your Home Training Center. They will be able to confirm your address where the card will be sent and send you a temporary TVC card. This temporary card is valid for 2 weeks until you receive your permanent card in the mail. Once we request a new TVC card, all other TVC cards will be invalid. The new card will be mailed to the address we have on file.

*NOTE: Always check both your spam and promotions folders for emails from us.

▲ IMPORTANT!  If you have an SST Card issued by the NYC Carpenters, the action to reprint the TVC card will invalidate your SST card. This is because your SST card is linked to your TVC card. So, if a you request a replacement TVC card, you must notify NYC Carpenters so they can reissue you a valid SST card.
