CertainTeed has a brand new course entitled "The Use of Self Adhering Systems in Low Slope Roofing" that can be found at our web site Participants must register the first time they come to our site. Both user id and password are case sensitive. The course has a book mark feature. This allows a participant who may not be able to complete a course in one sitting, the ability to come back at a later date and either start back where they left off or back at the beginning of the course. The course clearly states the learning objectives at the beginning of the course and each module. It also features interactive exercises to test the participants knowledge after each module and help them prepare for the final test. The final test consists of 20-25 questions. The participant must pass with a grade of 80% to receive credit for completion.

Like all CertainTeed courses, this one is free of charge and available 24/7. It has been constructed under the strict guidelines of The American Institute of Architects and is generic (not self promoting). It also qualifies for health, safety and welfare credit with the AIA. It has been granted one (1) contact hour from the AIA and is NACHI approved. Below are the course objectives.

Low Slope Roofs - 1 Contact Hour
After completing this module, you will be able to:

- Define low slope roofs.

- State one or more ways that low slope roofs differ from steep slope roofs.

- Describe each of the three basic components of a low slope roof assembly.

- Describe the significance of these design considerations for low slope roofs: Mechanical units, Cants, Flashings, Expansion joints
