Gerry,
I've been going to the Certainteed site, but they don't post NACHI CE credits.

The above CE credits are those accepted by the NACHI Education Committee. The credits are not posted on the Certainteed site, but I will send them an email to see if they can add that.

Just keep a copy of course completion proof, and upload the courses to the NACHI online Education Log ... https://www.nachi.org/education_log.htm ... with the number of CE hours indicated above ... icon_wink.gif

Hey Gerry,
Some states require written certificates of completion as proof. Is there anything like that available here?
Or could there be something that's printable after successful completion that's printable with your name on it class information, credits, etc?

Hi Kevin,

most of the above listed courses are accepted by AIA and others as part of that acceptance the provider emails you a completion certificate after you have finished it.

Hi. Gerry;
Thank you for the information you provided. I have taken all 17 seminars as provided by CertainTeed and found it very educational and exceptional.
Certificates are awarded as well as being graded on your performance.

Here are a few more that I have found to be educational.
There are a few you listed that I have not yet looked at, but will shortly.

Hi to all,

Chris and I have discussed providing certificates of completion for our own roofing course before, I'll case him up on this idea. It shouldn't be too hard to automate.

Regards

Gerry
