    Chubb

    The facility I work at is insured by Chubb. They don't offer much of a discount for their customers. One would think it they would want to train their customer on how to reduce the risk (and their exposure)

    I will attend the modules I can afford on my own as they was no budget available.

      I am a Code Enforcement Officer/BI in a municipality in Pa. with a large industrial/commercial presence. If Chubb handles the insurance for any of these properties, I wonder if they would sponsore my attendance? As previously stated, would love to attend, but even with the discount the boss would say no no no no no no no no!!!!!!

        The registration form does not include the 20% discount for Fire Inspectors. Do I need to contact someone to receive this discount??

              Once again I have heard that these are great classes, but way too cost-prohibitive.

                Chubb Loss Control University would like to thank everyone that attended one of our fire lab courses this year. We have had a great response to several of our classes, so much so that we have had to turn some away who wished to attend. Thus, due to overwhelming demand, the following courses are being re-offered and added to Chubb's Loss Control University November schedule:

                Module 3: Fire Pumps November 15 8:30 - 4:30

                Please note: Because these are additional classes, and not part of our regular schedule, these classes will not be held if we do not have at least 15 attendees per class. We will make the decision to hold or cancel the class based on the number of attendees registered as of November 2. Therefore, please get your registration in early! We will not require payment until we confirm the class is being held. All classes are held at Chubb's Fire Lab, 15 Mountain View Rd,
                Warren, NJ 07059.

                Space is also available in Module 4: Water Based Fire Protection. This is a 2 day course being offered November 13 and 14 from 8:30 - 4:30.

                Courses provide contact hours which can be used towards NICET, CSP and CFPS designations. We are also an AIA certified provider.

                      Do you happen to know if the State of Pa Labor & Industry will give con-ed credits?

                      **DISREGARD** Just found Chubb's name on the PA L & I approved vendor con-ed list.
