Regarding recent CSL training:

“I think it was complete and informative. I would recommend to anyone looking to renew.”
John M.

“Excellent presentation . . . fantastic job covering current building issues.”
Robert T.

“Sessions were lively, allowing questions and answers back and forth. Instructor was very knowledgeable.”
Howard G.

These comments were among those received on a Program Evaluation Form for recent CSL training by Phil Sheehan of Construction Safety Institute

“I am writing to thank you for the great service and training you provide. This is not something I do that often, but being a contractor for over 28 years and receiving letters of appreciation from my customers for the good work that we do, makes it worth the effort.

There are many lumber yards out there to choose from, but what moved me to write this letter is how National Lumber works to keep its customers (contractors) educated from the new EPA RRP lead paint rules, OSHA safety classes, Energy Star programs, business and legal programs.

To top it off, as a contractor, I receive all these programs plus great service and competitive pricing.

Thanks again for all the work you do. Doing business with you is a pleasure.”

- Chris Zorzy, A & A Services, Salem, MA

Contractor Training & Building Seminars

As a service to our contractor customers, National Lumber hosts and sponsors a wide array of important educational classes that are not only informative, but also help serve requirements for new licensing requirements. From Construction Supervisor Licensing CEU's to EPA RRP lead-safe certification, we host these events to help contractors have the tools, knowledge, and certification they need to succeed in the ever-changing construction industry environment. Our focus is on your success!

Don't worry about the new Construction Supervisor License Continuing Education requirements for Massachusetts contractors! National Lumber will continue to sponsor and host upcoming training classes to help you meet these new requirements!

Look for upcoming classes and seminars on our Events page.

Training classes are hosted in our training room upstairs at our store location at 245 Oakland St in Mansfield, MA. They are open to both customers and non-customers, but all require that you register with the trainer for that event. Registration links will be found on our Events page.

If you are interested in training, but Mansfield isn’t convenient for you, these training companies may have classes at locations closer to you, which are not hosted by National Lumber. We encourage you to contact them to find out about other options.

DISCLAIMER: National Lumber is not responsible for the training classes being offered. Registration and content are being handled by outside companies. National Lumber hosts these events for your convenience. By clicking on the links, you will leave the National Lumber website and be taken to another company's website.
