What is TRI Certification?
The Tile Roofing Institute (TRI) Installer Certification Program imparts the requisite knowledge and industry standards to roofing contractors who install concrete and clay tile roofs. Launched in 2006, the certification program requires an extensive 2 day seminar and evaluation designed to enhance the knowledge of individuals involved in the construction and installation of tile roofing systems. Lessons are taught by TRI Certified instructors who have attended TRI training and have years of experience in the tile roofing industry.
Why Choose a TRI Certified Installer?
(from the TRI website)
They Are Professionals
TRI-certified roofing tile installers are industry professionals who are up-to-date on roofing standards, practices, and advances in the installation of concrete and clay tile.
Value You Can Count On
When you hire trained installers, you hire skilled craftsmen who provide value for your home-building or homeimprovement dollar. Certified installers are committed to their craft and are more likely to invest in their own continuing education.
Confidence in Your Investment
You’re investing in a low-maintenance, long-lasting roof. Certified installers know how to get the job done right the first time—and on time. Boost your confidence in a job well done by hiring a roofing contractor with TRI-certified installers.
As part of the two-day program TRI certified installers are given access to multiple reference manuals and guides that enhance their training. Certified installers must also pass a 50-question exam to obtain their 2-year certification. Certification equals knowledge.
