CRA’s Metal Course will expose students to working with different types of metal and issues to consider when using a metal roof system. The class will cover the appropriate use of equipment and hand tools. It will also cover basic bending and folding techniques and cutting of metal. Safety hazards will be identified and the use of good safety practices and techniques will be demonstrated. Learn about structural and architectural metal, metal finishes and coatings, fastening systems, and the important factors for successful installation and repair of a metal roof system.

The class is for students who have a background in roofing and want to improve what they know and for installers who have not yet worked with sheet metal or need to learn proper techniques

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

  •  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 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. 
  • Please maintain a social distance at all times.
  • Increased cleaning and disinfectant procedures throughout our Training Center located at 1660 Jasper St, Unit I in Aurora.
  • Increased signage on proper handwashing 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.

> > > We ask that if you are sick, have been sick, have an elevated temperature, have recently traveled or been in a contaminated area, please do not come to the training. Please let us know and then stay at home and we will credit you for the class.
