That's great news Mr. Tannenbaum! Aside from increasing your financial volume, who is independently training your SPF installers to make sure they do the job correctly the first time, every time? We both know this could prove to be a full time job in and of itself.

Wishing you and your staff a Very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!

Mr Beyer,

We sponsor SPFA certifications offered by SPFA certified instructors for spray foam installers at our facility in CT on a periodic basis.  We also ask our dealers to comply with all local codes, training requirements and safety when installing any retrofit product.

Marc

Mr. Tannenbaum,

How long have you used the SPFA training curriculum? Do you think your business group has benefited more from this curriculum than the training provided by the chemical manufacturer?
