The Covid-19 pandemic forced the world to adapt to many changes. With new regulations and resources available, some of the best ways that technology has been incorporated has been the ability to work and train from home. Some still wonder how training at home could be possible, especially in an industry such as roofing. Roof Coatings Manufactures Association (RCMA) not only found a way to make instruction and guidance possible but to make it engaging, all from the comfort of your home or office.
Knowledge is power. President of General Coatings Manufacturing Corporation, Will Lorenz says, “Employee training and development programs provide the perfect opportunity to expand the knowledge base within your organization. And most importantly, great learning experiences makes for a happier, more productive workforce.”
This is the driving force in the industry. RCMA’s VTP qualifies for American Institute of Architects (1.0 Learning Unit-LU per course) and International Institute of Building Envelope Consultants (1.0 Continuing Education Hour - CEH per course) to support the education needs of the industry’s professionals.
RCMA currently offers three training units of various topics to establish a general base knowledge of roof coatings to build on. It allows for seasoned contractors or those just getting started to follow the program and become well versed in what they’re doing. Each module covers a different key aspect of roof coating knowledge: Evaluating and Preparing Surfaces for Roof Coatings, Roof Coating Technologies and Roof Coating Application Best Practices. After completing these modules, anyone would be well positioned to transition to hands-on skill development and product specific training with a manufacturer
Access to this online program can be purchased individually or in bulk which makes it convenient if a business wants all their employees to be at the same level or they have a group of new hires who need to be trained.
Will continues, “General Coatings is proud to support the RCMA Virtual Training Program and share this program with our customers so they too can enhance their coating knowledge and training programs.”
