Safety Training Awards Recognition courses (STARs) are one of many perks of membership with Painters District Council No. 30. It’s a guaranteed way for painting, drywall, or glazing professionals to improve their skill set, increase on-the-job health and safety, and invest in their future.

We are proud to provide ongoing coursework throughout the year. Throughout 2017, we are offering 59 STARs classes. Class is always in session, and it’s available whenever our members are ready to grow.

Qualify for big rewards

Members who participate in the STARs program may be eligible for exciting prizes and rewards each year. To qualify for STARs rewards at the annual STARs picnic, members just need to earn at least two STARs course credits and work at least 500 hours during each calendar year. Credits are earned by participating in various STARs-eligible courses sponsored by the PDC 30 Joint Apprenticeship & Training Fund (JATF).

How to enroll in STARs courses

Once an employer becomes a PDC 30 union contractor, their team of painters, decorators, dry wall finishers, and glazers are eligible to enroll. On top of the STARs coursework, employers and members will also get more work opportunities, better wages, and exemplary health coverage and retirement benefits. Learn about all the advantages here.

Every course will be at the JATF, 1905 Sequoia Drive in Aurora, IL, unless otherwise stated. To register, or to get further information on PDC 30, call (630) 377-2120. We hope to see you there soon.
