Product knowledge and installation education are important in every area of roofing, but are particularly important in the specialized world of commercial roofing and weatherproofing. Derbigum, a company that began in 1932, offers a wide variety of training on technical commercial roofing and weatherproofing. Courses cover the theory and practicum and can be completed in a variety of locations, including contractor and distributor yards and training centers in Ohio, Mississippi, New Jersey, California, Maryland, and more.
After completing a course, a contractor can obtain the title of Derbigum Approved Contractor (DAC). Derbigum also offers AIA-approved courses, which qualify for 1 Continuing Education Unit (CEU). The courses include Cold Applied Roofing, Low Slope Roofing overview, and PMMA/PMA (Polymeric Liquid Applied Membranes). These courses can empower contractors by providing a refresher or allowing them to start from scratch on certifications. Education is essential in our business.
