One of the things that we miss about not being able to attend roofing industry events and conferences is the educational component. These conferences provide an opportunity to learn about what is new in the industry and earn continuing education credits toward professional certifications.
S-5! has been the leading authority on metal attachments for 27 years and they have developed online and in-person classes that allow you to earn American Institute of Architects (AIA) approved and North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) credits at no cost to you. NABCEP is the most recognized and esteemed certification the renewable energy industry has to offer.
These courses are available at no cost to you. On-demand courses include:
The Snow Guard Continuing Education Course
This course explores the myths and misconceptions surrounding rooftop snow effects, migration and management. You will learn the art and science behind avalanche protection as it applies to standing seam metal roofs. Gain an understanding of placement and frequency of the protection and the facts on how to effectively use snow retention systems to protect your clients.
Solar Mounting Continuing Education Course
This free online class teaches you how to maximize solar harvesting benefits on a metal roof. There is an art and science behind installing PV technology on a standing seam metal roof and this class covers it. You’ll learn solar system basics, terminology, components, application options, and steps on how to be solar-ready with an optimized system design.
Live weekly learning opportunities from S-5!
S-5! University offers weekly webinars on a wide variety of topics ranging from solar attachments, exposed fastener do’s and don’ts to design considerations for high wind areas and more. Some of the free webinars are even presented in Spanish.
Many of these webinars offer AIA and NABCEP credits. Attendees are enjoying the webinars with one saying, ““I really like the S-5! webinars. I am being invited to many different webinars from companies all over the world, but the S-5! ones are quite simply the best. I do a lot of technical presenting for my company and I am enjoying watching the slick presentation and good quality technical information! I have been encouraging the companies I work with in Solar and Height Safety to look at your website and attend the webinars.”
