Advanced Techniques

 

This advanced training allows installers to deepen their knowledge and technical skills for installing SBS modified bitumen membranes.

SOPREMA offers theoretical and practical training to roofers with a minimum of two years of experience in the installation of heat-welded SBS modified bitumen membranes. The training will allow participants to familiarize themselves with high-performance systems – either mechanically attached, bonded with adhesive or hot bitumen and self-adhesive – while also refreshing their knowledge regarding traditional[1] system installation techniques and new products. Participants will have the opportunity to review the basics and to increase knowledge of our membranes’ features and appropriate and safe application methods for all products, as well as safety rules on construction sites and industry requirements.

At the end of this training, participants will be required to pass a practical evaluation and a theoretical exam in order to obtain the Advanced Installer certification. They will also have the knowledge required to effectively install all types of SBS modified bitumen membranes.

Please note that hiring Certified Advanced Installers does not guarantee that the contractor will have access to SOPREMA’s Program Alliance for Quality + Safety (PAQ+S). Roofing contractors who want to see their company become a member of the network and gain access to MAMMOUTH Platinum warranties should contact their SOPREMA representative for more information about eligibility and procedures
