COURSE DESCRIPTION: Metal Advanced
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. Upon completing the course, students will receive a "Certificate of Completion."
