ACTION ALERT: The window to self-certify for Title 24 acceptance is closing.
Business Impact – potential project delays and Title 24 certification of your projects by union technicians
Acceptance testing is currently required for a wide range of installations including (but not limited to): Insulation, Lighting Controls, Mechanical Systems (domestic hot water, heating, ventilation and air conditioning or HVAC), and other Covered Processes (i.e., escalators, elevators, refrigerated warehouses, etc.). Title 24 acceptance testing by certified personnel will soon be required on all mechanical work for commercial clients.
Mechanical contractors can self-inspect with their own certified personnel; otherwise, the testing will need to be done by a 3rd party. Do you want the union certifying your jobs?
There are currently approximately 370 certified acceptance testing technicians; it is estimated that a minimum of 1200 acceptance testing technicians are needed statewide. 70% of those certified are sheet metal union workers. Certification involves acceptance to the program, multiple tests and lab exercises.
