Our training program provides the necessary in-class and practical application training, including the health and safety aspects, needed to work in commercial and residential construction. Our training program provides students with the certifications that are required to spray foam in Canada.
The goal of our programs are to give the skills required to be a professional and productive installer. Each individual will be given the attention they need from the different instructors with a variety of expertise on equipment, building science, building codes, applications and much more.
Sprayed Polyurethane Foam that is applied in code approved applications in Canada needs to meet two criteria:
Product Standards (CAN/ULC S705.1 & CAN/ULC S712.1)
Pinnacles spray foam insulation products conform to CAN/ULC S705.1 (including Amendments 1, 2 and 3) for medium density spray polyurethane foam as well as CAN/ULC S712.1 for light density spray polyurethane foam. Our materials have been tested and evaluated by CCMC (Canadian Construction Materials Centre, a branch of the NRC) and comply with CCMC’s Technical Guide for Spray-in-Place Thermal Insulation.
Installation Standards (CAN/ULC S705.2 & CAN/ULC S712.2)
The National Building Code of Canada references the installation standard CAN/ULC S705.2 for medium density spray polyurethane foam as well as CAN/ULC S712.2 for light density spray polyurethane foam products, which requires that polyurethane foam sprayers be certified in order to apply the products. If you are new to the spray foam industry you must take the certification/training course and meet all of the requirements of the CAN/ULC S705.2 and CAN/ULC S712.1 standards.
The training/certification course covers the CAN/ULC Standards, Building Codes, Health & Safety, Equipment Selection, Storage & Maintenance, Material Selection, Job-site Preparation, Site Testing Process, Quality Control and more. Each participant also spends time learning proper spray techniques for applying SPF insulation, completes a spray evaluation, density test evaluation and equipment evaluation. Upon successful completion attendees will receive an applicator card and be licensed to spray foam in Canada.
SPF Training courses offer:
- Hands-on and classroom training utilizing multimedia and PowerPoint in a professional setting.
- Expert training from skilled and experienced instructors.
- A constantly updated curriculum targeted directly to Canadian SPF Installers.
