To help support the booming demand for qualified metal roofing installers and providers, the University of Wisconsin-Madison is offering an extension course this winter entitled “Metal Roofing from A (Aluminum) to Z (Zinc).”
Held Dec. 5-6, 2019, early registration is now open at https://epd.wisc.edu/course/metal-roofing-systems/. A special $150 discount off of tuition for members of the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA) also is available using code S-5DIS.
For contractors, construction and renovation businesses, and others looking to build their expertise in the metal roofing industry, this course is designed to be among the most comprehensive available. It covers fundamental principles and advanced topics in both low-slope and steep-slope metal roofing systems and focuses on a wide breadth of essential topics, such as commonly-specified materials and coatings, typical seam profiles, attachment techniques, sealants, flashings, underlayment, snow retention, re-roofing concerns, and design details.
“Demand for metal roofing is outstripping the supply of experienced, qualified installers and providers. That makes it an excellent time to capitalize on the metal roofing business opportunity,” said Renee Ramey, MRA executive director, the leading nonprofit trade association representing the industry in the U.S. and Canada. “Comprehensive educational resources like these are key for the industry’s continued growth and expansion.”
“Metal Roofing from A (Aluminum) to Z (Zinc)” is suitable for anyone involved in metal roofing design, manufacturing, construction, maintenance, repair and re-roofing, or those looking to enter the field. Course participants can earn Continuing Education Units (CEU), Professional Development Hours (PDH) and AIA Learning Unit Health, Safety and Welfare (LU/HSW) credits.
