MATT Level 1 CLASSES

October 1, 2021, the State of California has mandated that all required Mechanical Acceptance Tests be performed by ONLY certified Mechanical Acceptance Test Technicians working for certified Mechanical Acceptance Test Employers. To meet these needs the Bay Area Training Centers will be conducting the required classes for the certification process. For Sheet Metal Journeypersons that do not hold a current TABB Technician certification, the MATT Level 1 certification is available through NEMIC (The National Energy Management Institute Committee, a national Joint Labor Management Committee) and offered through the training centers. There are two classes required, a lecture based class and a hands on lab class. The lecture class will cover State of California code and program requirements, the California Non Residential Compliance Manual and the required Mechanical acceptance test form requirements for each of the nine covered tests that MATT Level 1 technicians are allowed to perform. The Lab class will allow you to perform actual testing for each of the nine covered test forms and will include the required testing sessions for certification.

Two separate MATT Level 1 Lecture classes are scheduled to start May 2, 2022. Class A will be scheduled to attend on Monday & Wednesday evenings and Class B attending Tuesdays & Thursday evenings.   Due to current COVID-19 conditions and restrictions, all classes will currently be offered via Distance Learning format using Zoom Video Conferencing. The Hands on Lab classes will be scheduled to start at the conclusion of the final lecture class as an open lab concept.

This is a critically needed certification that can lead to excellent employment opportunities and job hours. In addition, Local 104 is offering a $500 bonus to those Journeypersons who achieve a MATT Certification.

Please contact your local JATC for enrollment information.

REVIT CLASSES

Revit 2022 for Detailing, online, starting 6/17/22

Fabrication 2022 in Revit, online starting 5/12/22, 9/27/22 

Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 104 and Bay Area Industry Training Fund is offering a fully online Revit class for existing detailers or those who are seriously interested in becoming full time detailers. The Revit 2022 for Detailing class is a fast paced, comprehensive course that covers how Revit is used to detail. It will be followed up by a Fabrication in Revit 2022 online class, which will focus on ductwork. The two classes together will give existing detailers a very solid foundation to begin detailing in Revit. This is also a good starting point for members who are not currently working as full-time detailers, but would like to. Members are encouraged to take these classes as many times as needed.

Revit 2022 for Detailing, online

  • Prerequisites: Journeyman in good standing, or Apprentice on the Coordinator’s List. 2. A computer and good basic computer skills (Windows based)
  • Description: This is a 3 hours per week,12-week fully online class. It covers what Detailers need to know to begin working in Revit. It is assumed that you know how to detail, whether by hand or using CAD software. Student Revit software will be provided. Prior CAD experience is not necessary.

Fabrication 2022 in Revit, online

  • Prerequisites: Must have successfully completed Revit 2022 for Detailing, or obtain instructor’s permission
  • Description: This fully online class is 4-hour per week for 12-weeks. This class will follow the Revit for Detailing class, to teach members how to work with Fabrication duct inside Revit. It is a start-to-finish approach to the steps a detailer must do to produce a shop drawing.

Not planning on becoming a full-time detailer, but would like to be able to use Revit software?

Do you think you might like to become a Detailer, but are not sure, or may need help with your computer skills?

The Training Facilities are planning to offer in-person Introduction to Revit classes in 2022. Due to COVID, we do not have any Introduction to Revit in-person classes currently scheduled, but we are hopeful that circumstances will allow it in 2022

Introduction to Revit (dates and locations to be announced)

  • Prerequisite: Local 104 Member in good standing
  • Description: 40-hour, 2 evenings per week, 6 week, in-person class. It is designed for those members who have access to Revit on a jobsite & would like to be able to use Revit to perform simple tasks themselves, or think they might like to become detailers, but have not had exposure to detailing software. It will be taught at a moderate pace, covering the user interface, basic modeling skills, & some Revit duct. It will give you the opportunity to learn enough Revit to be able to open & make changes to files on a jobsite or find out whether detailing is an option you might like to consider. Very basic computer experience is helpful but not required.
  • You may request to be placed on a list, to be notified when this class will be available at your Training Facility.

If you are interested in any of these Revit classes, please email Julie Fifield at julief@smw104jatc.org for more information.
