Location:
Exhibitor Presented Seminar Center, Booth #260

The Roofing Alliance and Clemson University have partnered to develop, and implement, a roofing-specific course into the university’s curriculum. This session will focus on the background of the partnership, students’ perception of the course and how industry stakeholders can capitalize on this new opportunity in their own communities. You will learn how the course was developed within the university structure, identify strategies industry members can use to partner with local educational institutions, discuss how industry members can assist local educational institutions in offering a course on roofing, discuss how to partner with schools of construction management, e.g., by serving on advisory boards, offering to be a guest lecturer or developing an internship program.

 


Training and Sustaining Your Workforce

Exhibitor Presented Seminar Center, Booth #260

Today’s tight labor market has resulted in a shortage of skilled, experienced workers in the roofing industry. As a result, companies have found themselves with unskilled or under-trained laborers on roofing projects, which can lead to quality issues and high rates of turnover. Learn from a panel of roofing industry leaders how they successfully approach workforce development and use ProCertification, Training For Roof Application Careers (TRAC), and Qualified Trainer programs to address their need for a competent, sustainable and high-performing roofing workforce.
