TPO and EPDM are the two most popular low slope roofing membranes in Colorado.  This course is intended for installers who are newer to the industry who are seeking in depth knowledge of TPO and EPDM systems as well as learning proper installation techniques for each of these membrane systems and their respective details. 

Small class size; maximum 18 students per course. The two-day class is approximately 75% hands-on and includes lectures as well as working sessions.  Students will install details on our mock-ups so they come away with a greater understanding of proper installation techniques. Upon completing the course, students will receive a "Certificate of Completion."

Make a commitment to take a person out of the field for two-days, we’ll train them and with their new knowledge and skills, they will be twice as productive when they return.

Covid-19 Precautions

CRA is committed to maintaining all appropriate sanitary, health, and safety measures and encourage attendees to our events and Training Center to follow guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

Our Preparedness Plan for the CRA Training Center

We have taken a series of precautionary steps in response to this developing public health impact, including:

  •  Masks are REQUIRED. The CRA is currently operating under the Colorado statewide face mask mandate.  All students must wear a face mask as required by this mandate.  No students will be admitted to the class without a face mask.  If unable to meet this requirement, the student shall contact the CRA, to reschedule, by no later than August 24th.  If a student's mask is not worn during class they will be given one warning, their second violation of the CRA mask requirement will result in immediate dismissal from class.  No refunds will be provided should the student be dismissed from class for failing to wear their mask.  
  • Increased cleaning and disinfectant procedures throughout our Training Center located at 1660 Jasper St, Unit I in Aurora.
  • Increased signage on proper hand washing and prevention tips through-out the Training Center.
  • Our event will be a NO HANDSHAKE zone.  While the risk remains low at this time, we cannot ensure a 100% virus-free environment.  Please consider our meetings a touch free zone.  No hand-shakes, or other touching.  Please maintain a social distance at all times.
  • Wash, Wash, Wash. We have 3 sinks at the Training Center.  Please wash as often as you can.  This is a requirement, not a suggestion.
  • If possible, please bring your own tools as mentioned above.  We do have shared tools available and these have been cleaned using the same chemical hospitals use to sanitize their equipment and environments.
  • Brand New Safety gloves and glasses are provided for you.  These are for you to keep and take with you after class.  If you don’t think you will need them, then feel free to toss before leaving.
  • Weather permitting, doors will be open and fans will be used to circulate air throughout the facility.
