CARLISLE SPRAY FOAM INSULATION SETS NEW STANDARD FOR INDUSTRY TRAINING, LAUNCHES CARLISLE PRO ACADEMY
September 11, 2023
Carlisle Spray Foam Insulation (CSFI), a leading manufacturer of spray polyurethane foam insulation products in North America, rolls out Carlisle PRO Academy, a comprehensive training, education and certification program for spray foam professionals. Developed in direct response to contractor feedback, Carlisle PRO Academy participants can become certified applicators by completing a series of online learning modules and an in-field evaluation. Spray foam professionals looking to earn an advanced certification have the opportunity to attend a three-day intensive training at a state-of-the-art training facility at Carlisle’s Training Center in Carlisle, PA. With the launch of Carlisle PRO Academy, CSFI sets a new standard for spray foam manufacturers and reinforces its reputation as a steward of the industry.
A multidisciplinary training program, Carlisle PRO Academy participants take their first step towards becoming a certified Carlisle PRO Applicator by successfully completing eight online learning modules and passing a final course exam. To reduce downtime spent out of the field and support different learning styles, participants can take the course and test at their own speed via a phone, tablet or computer. The online applicator training can also be conducted in person upon request. Unlike any other training program, Carlisle PRO Academy modules explore situational awareness, concentrating on the impact different field conditions have on spray foam equipment and how to overcome those challenges on the job. After passing the online final exam, a CSFI technician will go on-location to conduct a spray evaluation, assessing participants’ spray techniques and ensuring they know how to operate their equipment in the field.
“Carlisle PRO Academy is a first-of-its-kind training program—it is going to set a high standard of required training in an industry that we sometimes refer to as the Wild West,” said Steven Fries, Tech Services Wall Spray Foam Manager, CSFI. “Each component of this program was carefully designed with the applicator in mind; we want them to walk away with the confidence and know-how to perform their job efficiently and effectively. By supporting the professional development of our customers, we are elevating the industry as a whole—it’s a win-win.”
