S-5! launches online educational training program
S-5! has launched its online educational training program S-5-University to educate industry professionals on all things metal roofing.
Led by the metal roof experts at S-5!, these in-depth courses will help individuals gain valuable insights into the company’s products, understand the various applications and discover best practices for installation. The first series is of S-5-University is focused on solar mounting and metal roofing.
“Our goal is to provide our customers and the greater solar industry with all the necessary information and tools, a one-stop-shop to understand all the ‘whys’ gaining insight to make their jobs easier,” S-5! marketing manager Jessica Haddock says.
With the cost of solar decreasing significantly over the last decade, in addition to new tax incentives introduced in many countries driving the popularity of solar, it became necessary for S-5! to develop a training tool for installers and crash course for sales professionals.
S-5!’s new curriculum was created by husband-and-wife team Shawn and Jessica Haddock, both employed by the family-owned business. Through their interactions with customers and industry professionals, they identified a need for a single trusted source of reliable information. They worked with the company’s team of technical experts to create a series of step-by-step training courses to train individuals and teams from the ground up.
“We want to provide industry-leading knowledge on our products so our customers are fully aware of the value of each solution. This program will help them become experts on metal roof attachment solutions,” Jessica says.
Participants can log in to S-5-University via the company website, select a variety of courses, take brief quizzes at the end of each unit and earn certificates upon completion.
Those who are encouraged to attend include contractors, architects, specifiers, engineers, installers, EPCs, homeowners and DIY’ers.
