Coastal to Host an Air Barrier Association of America Training Course
December 31st, 2009
June 20, 2011 - Coastal will be hosting an Air Barrier Association of America Spray Polyurethane Foam Installer training course for the third time, scheduled for July 19 -21, 2011.
Two classes will be offered: the Installer Certification Training course (taking place on July 19 - 21, 2011), and the Quality Assurance Program Administrator course (July 21, 2011). Coastal will be providing the room for both classroom lecture and hands-on training.
The installer certification program combines theory with hands-on, practical instruction, in order to provide participants with the required skills to correctly install an air barrier assembly. When the course is complete, an installer should be able to: read and understand plans and specifications; select the proper material for the application; determine the proper substrate conditions; demonstrate proper application of the material; ensure the compatibility of components, and continuity over joints and junctions; undertake the required testing; accurately complete documentation; and complete the installation in a safe manner.
The quality assurance course gives participants an introduction to air barriers; materials vs. systems; building code requirements; site installation realities and installer testing requirements. The program also delivers an overview of the ABAA Quality Assurance Program, contractor and installer obligations, and project reporting and documentation.
The registration deadline for the programs is July 5, 2011.
