How Does My Company Stay UL-ULC Qualified?

Once a company is UL-ULC Qualified, the process does not end there. Annual follow-up audits of the Specialty Firestop Installation Contractor company’s home office and a jobsite(s) will be conducted by a UL-ULC representative. Additional audits may be required.

Additionally, the DRI may EITHER earn at least six (6) CEU’s or sixty (60) contact hours of industry-specific continuing education every three (3) years OR pass a written reexamination.

CEUs can be earned several ways and must be reported to UL-ULC via the DRI Recertification by Continuing Education Application.

Some options for earning CEUs are:

  1. Attend the full FCIA Education and Committee Action Conference, FCIA Firestop Industry Conference and Trade Show, and Symposiums
  2. Attend FCIA Educational Webinars
  3. Attend industry-related seminars and educational programs offered by accredited colleges, universities, and other providers of adult education where the topics covered are life-safety, loss prevention, building codes, and other construction related topics at the discretion of UL-ULC
  4. Present to Specifiers, Building Officials, Fire Marshals, and Code Officials where the DRI is the instructor (CEUs are awarded only for the first-time a body of knowledge is presented. Additional presentations using the same or similar content are not eligible for CEUs.) — Maximum of two (2) CEUs earned through instruction
  5. First-time on-the-job industry-related work experience — Maximum of one (1) CEU earned through first-time on-the-job work experience
  6. Maintain active membership in an industry-related professional organization — Maximum of one (1) CEU earned through membership

1 CEU = 10 hours of industry-specific continuing education
