The idea behind the educational class program is to provide education that will benefit the new person just entering the industry along with anyone already in the industry no matter the experience.

This program will allow each participant to achieve accreditation in his or her field and allow them to grow with the industry learning other aspects of the roofing trade. These accreditations will allow the workers and the contractors to market themselves showing the rest of the community and industry that they have the education, skill, experience and knowledge to install roofs that comply with rules and regulations. With this in mind we have created a program that will meet the industry standards and code requirements.

If you are a student, code officer, municipal investigator or inspector that wishes to learn our trade please contact the ARCA office, via email or call 602-335-0133, for preferred pricing.

Recent revisions to the International Building Code have increased structural requirements to negate the effects of wind uplift. Numberous Arizona municipalities, including Phoenix, are in the process of adopting these new standards. Our eigth course on Wind Uplift will synopsize a roofers responsibility to comply with the new minimum standards and avoid liabilities associated with construction defects.

  • Construction defect litigation, why you as a contractor need to understand wind uplift
  • How wind uplift is calculated
  • How to use a wind calculator
  • How to determine fastneing patterns
  • Case Study of a failed roof system application
