Certification Activities


During February 11, 12 and 13, the first two days of the SprayFoam 2022 Convention & Expo, a number of PCP certification activities took place, including free master installer field exams, written exam prep courses, and written exams. This year we set a record for master installer field exams at 83, and increased the total written exams taken in 2022 from 132 146. The historical data is shown below.

Participants were taken through each of the stations of the Field Exam to see what was involved. This experience brought the Field Exam to life! They were offered before the Field Exams began each day. We didn’t be sharing any answers (that part was up to candidates during the exam), but it was explained why and how the field exams were conducted, using an actual field exam set up as the prop.

The costs for the field exams are underwritten by Scholarship Sponsors. Time, equipment and all materials for the field exams are donated by Equipment and Material Sponsors. In addition there are many individual volunteers that contribute time and resources to teach our exam prep courses and field exams. For many, this  includes arriving at the field exam site three days before for set-up.

Thank you to all who contributed, including the following generous sponsors and volunteers.

We want to thank each of the volunteers who worked tirelessly to make the field exams a success!
Many volunteers arrived days early to do the set-up. Prior to that, there were hours of phone calls to iron out all the details. Under the leadership of Field Exam Director, Will Parker, and PCP Field Exam Co-Chairs, Bonnie Strickler and Ron Winkle. The large group of volunteers implemented the successful execution of the Field Exams in Daytona Beach at SprayFoam 2023.

It is the work of this incredible team of volunteers, the attention to detail and the dedication to the SPF industry that made it all happen. At the risk of forgetting someone, we want to thank each individual who contributed to this year's success. THANK YOU!
