Certification Programs

SPFA's PCP has a variety of individual certification programs in different categories and levels to accommodate the different job functions in the SPF workplace. 

The core of the program is focused upon the professional contractor and provides for two categories – one for contractor insulation certification and one for contractor roofing certification.

 Insulation Certification (four levels):
  • Assistant
  • Installer
  • Master Installer
  • Project Manager
Roofing Certification (four levels):

Supplier Representative Certification includes individuals who have direct advisory contact with the contractor with regard to SPF related materials, etc.
