National Roofing Week - Associate Training
Training is defined as a process by which someone is taught the skills that are needed for an art, profession or job. CentiMark allocates a considerable amount of time and resources for training in all disciplines: safety, crews, operations, sales, administration, legal and management.
Safety and operational training for our crews is ongoing. Crews are trained weekly, monthly and quarterly. Safety and standardized roofing practices training are continuous and mandatory.
Our sales and administrative associates have various professional development and job-related training specific to customer service, internal business practices and procedures, sales, legal, financial and tax updates, industry updates, vendor products, G-Mail/Google drive and technology updates. Our associates are also given the opportunity for AED/CPR First Aid training along with health and wellness seminars.

National Roofing Week takes place June 3-9, 2018, organized by the NRCA (National Roofing Contractors Association). Its mission is to increase awareness across the United States and Canada about the significance of roofs to every home and business and share the good deeds of the industry. National Roofing Week also promotes the importance of hiring a professional roofing contractor and making informed decisions about maintaining or replacing any roof system. The roof is one of the most important components of a home or business structure, yet it is often taken for granted until it falls into disrepair.
