In addition, NRCA will be accepting new candidates for its ProForeman Certificate Program, which provides essential leadership skills for roofing foremen to apply toward their important roles at their companies.

The ProForeman program helps roofing foremen shift their perspectives from being roof system installation managers to company leaders by focusing on six main topics: general education, roofing technology, construction/business practices, leadership, safety and training others.

“Foremen drive a roofing contractor’s trucks, use their equipment, manage their labor, direct quality control, affect insurance rates and often are the face of their company for customers,” says Amy Staska, NRCA University’s vice president. “Because of this, contractors should ensure their foremen perform at their best.

‘Copper in Architecture’ Webinar Scheduled for Dec. 19

The Copper Development Association (CDA) is hosting a “Copper in Architecture” webinar for design professionals on Dec. 19. Attendees have the opportunity to gain continuing education credit through the American Institute of Architects (AIA) while learning how copper, brass and bronze are used in building and construction.

The webinar, conducted in conjunction with Green CE/RBA, examines copper design basics, architectural uses, finishes and service-life. Larry Peters, CDA Project Manager & Architectural Applications Specialist, will lead the hour-long discussion.

“Copper and copper alloys are popular materials for architectural applications,” said Peters. “The webinar teaches architects how to use copper in different ways, employing proven techniques to enhance their own designs.”

The course also covers copper sources, energy efficiency, architectural design practices, common mistakes and sustainability. Recent copper projects provide examples of how copper/copper alloys are used for roofing, wall cladding and ornamental systems. A questions and answer session concludes the program.

“We want the building and construction community to know that CDA serves as a resource for architects, contractors and engineers seeking technical information and assistance on the use of copper and copper alloys,” said Peters. “This webinar provides a timely and more cost-effective way to reach design professionals who may otherwise not be able to attend a seminar in-person.”

The webinar is scheduled from 12 to 1 p.m. on December 19. Attendees qualify for one Continuing Education Unit and one Health, Safety and Wellness learning unit. Register for the Webinar.
