New Licensing Standards, testing and trainings

OKBFAA is pleased to announce that the Dept. of Labor new licensing tests have been introduced, effective September 2, 2014.  We, however, will not be introducing new training opportunities until December of this year.  The OKBFAA Board wants to be sure we roll out a quality industry training program and will feel confident we have done so in December.  The classes will cover:

  • Burglar and Residential Fire
  • CCTV/Access Controls
  • Commercial Fire

Each course will include information pertaining to Managers, Workplace Safety and First aid.

  • Each class will end with a test over the materials taught (Test administered Saturday)

  • To receive a certificate of completion, trainees must complete the entire course, including the test over the materials taught.

While we DO NOT TEACH to these tests, if your technicians and sales folks have previously taken the DOL licensing tests and DID NOT PASS, these pre-licensing training courses are the last of their kind.  Register today to reserve your spot!  

Here are links to a draft of the new testing standards to be implemented in July of this year.  Our curriculum will change to meet the knowledge and information that will need to be taught to train on the areas covered in these standards.

OKBFAA Plans

One of the OKBFAA goals is to keep our members and industry professionals informed as well as provide resources to educate themselves about changes in the industry.  The Board is committed to this and meets monthly to discuss any and all industry issues.  We encourage members to communicate with us and ask questions as they arise about the industry and how we all can strive for excellence.

We are reviving our organization and in doing so will be offering more annual events including a golf tournament and annual meeting.  This event will take place on September 18, 2014 immediately following the Department of Labor, Industry Sponsored Conference.  For a registration brochure, contact Danna Fowble, OKBFAA Executive Director.

OKBFAA and its board meet monthly with the Department of Labor to address issues of concern and challenges with workforce, industry regulations and other important topics.  We invite the industry to participate in these meetings with us.  To find out more and when the next meeting will take place, please contact Danna Fowble.

If you are interested in the makeup of the Alarm and Locksmith Committee or any other related agencies regulating and helping to license the Alarm and Locksmith industry, we hope you will contact our office and our Executive Director  We value your involvement and input in YOUR PROFESSIONAL Industry
