Offering an unlimited number of users, OCU provides critical content to help contractors throughout their organization – from employee onboarding to installation best practices. OCU is the latest introduction to a portfolio of digital resources Owens Corning offers OCCN members. “Owens Corning developed OCU to put relevant education directly in the contractor’s hands, regardless of time or location,” said Jon Gardner, Owens Corning’s Roofing Contractor Training and Education Leader. “Because each module is 15 minutes or less, users can easily fit learning into their schedule.”
As a dynamic, “living” resource, OCU will continue to evolve with the addition of new modules. Content included in Phase 1 includes informational courses on Owens Corning, on-boarding resources for new sales representatives, the ABCs of warranties, product and system news including the Duration® Series shingles, SureNail® Technology information, an overview of the Total Protection Roofing System®, roofing fundamentals, business service offerings and access to the Owens Corning Roofing video library.
OCU will be available on the OCConnectTM Resource Center effective February 11, 2019.
