Knowledge is defined as expertise and skills acquired by a person through experience or education. Knowledge is vitally important for the successful specification and application of high performance roof and coating systems. Experience and training can make the difference between success and failure, because no matter the quality of the products used, they must be correctly specified and properly applied to attain maximum performance.
Ultimately, the prime beneficiary of educational and training programs is the project owner. Through an educated specifier the owner will get the most technologically advanced products. A trained applicator will provide competent workmen and superior workmanship. When it all comes together, and the job is specified and applied correctly, the result will be superior long term performance.
Training and educational programs also help keep Acrymax informed. From architects and specifiers, we learn about the unique design challenges they face, and from applicators, we learn about practical issues regarding application. We fully expect to be educated by the student and trained by the trainee! Information sharing is critical to the advancement of the industry and to adding value to the solutions that we offer to our mutual customers.
The construction industry is moving towards a skilled workforce through increased training. The best roofing and coating contractors know that a workforce with superior skills and qualifications delivers higher quality and more cost-efficient work. This gives them a competitive advantage and adds value for their customers.
