T The SPF Assistant certification is specifically designed for those assisting in the installation of spray polyurethane foam in thermal insulation installations. SPF Assistant duties may include assisting in equipment and job set-up, substrate preparation, material handling and staging, moving of hoses/scaffolding/ladders, masking, trimming, clean-up and other nonspraying tasks. The SPF Assistant is the first level for both Insulation and Roofing. It is required that the SPF Assistant Written Exam be taken and passed for each level of certification. Although the course is not required by the PCP in order to become certified, we encourage everyone to take it since it contains fundamental and important information required to safely install SPF. Currently, the SPF Assistant Course is being translated into Spanish. The expected release date is spring 2015. Shortly thereafter, the Insulation Installer Course will be available, followed by the Roofing Installer Exam Prep Course (the initial releases will be in English, Spanish version will follow). We are working to make this program readily available and easily accessible to all, and many SPF suppliers are joining in our efforts. Ask your suppliers about their involvement with SPFA PCP and how they can help you achieve your SPFA PCP certification! The SPF Assistant Exam Prep Course is $250 for SPFA members and $350 for nonmembers (prices subject to change).
