BRS Develops SST Education Installer Training Program

Posted by: admin at 8:46 am on September 21st, 2017

The Superior Seam Technology (SST) by BRS has designed, developed, tested then deployed the two best performing metal standing seam roofing systems (Panel Craft 216/218 and TS324) available within the industry todayThe key to this superior standing seam roofing system is that it needs to be assembled in the field by properly trained individuals, or the industry’s leading performance; longevity and weather-ability could be negatively compromised. Many Licensees have requested a solution or an option to assure the contractor and end user of a properly installed SST roof system. BRS has listened and would like to offer the following option as a means to educate contractors, sub-contractors, erectors and licensee's personnel on the proper installation techniques through an instructional three (3) day training program.


For the important task of trainer/educator, BRS has reached out to Stephen J Shearer, PE with LMK Building Designs, Inc.  out of Arlington, Tennessee to develop an SST education installer training program. With over thirty (30) plus years within the metal building and metal roofing communities, Stephen is one of the most respected leading trainers, educators and practical real-world project inspectors. This training program will allow Licensees to set up their own individual approved /certified installers erection schools within their geographical service areas.  A $2,500.00 flat fee for this service has been established for three (3) days of educational/instructional time (first day set-up, second day classroom and third day in-facility mock-up for hands on application). This flat rate teaching fee does not include any expenses. The additional expenses are, but not limited to, airfare, car rental, meals and hotel stays. These expenses will be added to the flat rate fee after the instructional school has been completed. Every individual licensee will set their class fee rate for their attendees. Currently, the typical industry cost for attendance is $275.00 per person per class with a sliding fee scale for multiple sponsored attendees beginning at the third sponsored participant at a rate reduced fee of $225.00 per person. Typically, the licensee will contribute teaching materials (i.e. Technical installation manuals, pens, note pads, etc), the cost of light breakfast items including coffee and then cover the cost of box lunch items along with appropriate cold drinks. This will allow all attendees to remain at the teaching location for minimum disruption and safety for the ones seeking licensee approval/certification.
