WARWICK – The Professional Regulation Unit at the R.I. Department of Labor and Training is holding a free series of educational workshops for contractors in the construction industry starting on Monday.
Interested professionals must pre-register in order to attend the workshops, being held at the Community College of Rhode Island Warwick Campus on Aug. 20 at 9 a.m. and again on Aug. 30 at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Each workshop will be hosted by department experts and will include a review of state bidding, permitting and licensing procedures followed by a question-and-answer session.
The department held a similar workshop last spring for state and municipal administrators to review their legal obligations for bidding and permitting construction jobs.
The Professional Regulation Unit is part of the department’s Workforce Regulation and Safety Division.
