Training Course – SPFA Certification Preparatory Seminar
Demilec USA, LLC is now offering a preparatory seminar to assist contractors and installers to certify under the SPFA Professional Certification Program. Our goal is to prepare the attendees to take the SPFA examinations for the various levels of installer (applicator) certification, plus we offer a day of business training and a full day of hands-on training including spray technique, troubleshooting and equipment maintenance. On the final day of our training, we’ll provide all students the opportunity to take the tests for any of the SPFA certifications.
The prerequisite for SPFA’s Certification is the CPI Health and Safety Certification, which can be completed online at www.spraypolyurethane.org. We ask all attendees of Demilec USA’s training seminars to take this valuable training, pass the test and have a current certification number prior to coming to class. Demilec USA will teach the class assuming you have completed the CPI Health and Safety Certification and have reviewed the Assistant Level material which will be sent to you electronically after we have verified your registration.
Day 1 – Business Tips for Profit and Growth
The first day is dedicated to the business owner or general manager and will cover the basic tenets of operating a spray foam business. We’ll offer guidance on estimating, finding the right price, selecting the appropriate market segment, tips on marketing and sales as well as ideas from successful contractors for getting their crews out in the morning and pulling the trigger eight hours every day.
Day 2 – SPFA Certification Preparatory Seminar
As people register for our Certification Prep session we’ll send them the SPFA Assistant level study guide in addition to the CPI Guidance on Best Practices for the Installation of Spray Polyurethane Foam. We’ll ask the attendees to study these documents and consult their local TM and TSR with any questions they have regarding the content. Our presenters will assume the attendees already have a good understanding of the Assistant Level material and we’ll cover the more advanced Installer and Master Installer level material in the seminar. The attendees will receive the Installer and Master Installer study guides at class and we’ll review the material during the day and encourage study in the evening to prepare for the certification tests on Friday.
Day 3 – Hands On!
This will likely be the favorite day for most applicators as we put the theory we studied on Day 2 into action. We’ll spray foam in our lab, offering guidance for both ocSPF and ccSPF techniques. We’ll also present guidance for troubleshooting Graco® equipment including guns, drum pumps, hose heat and error codes. We’ll give a basic demonstration on use of a VOM with some practice on hose heat fault scenarios. At the end of the day we’ll gather to review and offer guidance for those taking the certification tests on Day 4.
Day 4 – SPFA Certification Tests
All four SPFA Professional Certification Program written exams will be available on a reservation basis. In accordance with the SPFA Certification Program policy, all who take the tests must first be registered into the program, have CPI H&S certification and must take the tests in order, starting with the Assistant level, then the Installer level, then the Master Installer, and finally the Project Manager level. Each test is 100 questions with a two hour time limit. A person could make a reservation to take one, two, three or all four of the written tests on Day 4, but all tests must be taken on the same day.
The attendee will register for the SPFA Certification Program on the SPFA website, and pay test fees directly to SPFA accordingly. A detailed description of the SPFA Certification Program is online at http://www.sprayfoam.org/index.php?page_id=4557. In order to certify as a Master Installer the applicant must submit a form describing his spray foam experience and pass a field evaluation.
