Stages of the Licensing Programme
The Viking Licensing Programme for an Approved Applicator includes three stages. Each stage must be completed successfully (irrespective of experience) in order for an installer to be awarded his or her final licence.
Every Viking Roofspec Approved Applicator must have completed, or be in the process of completing this licensing programme to be eligible to install Viking's materials.
Viking Roofspec Purpose Built Facility - Practical, hands-on training and presentations, on how to ensure a specific roofing system is building code compliant, watertight, professional and installed with health and safety in mind.
This ensures that Viking Applicators have received training on how to successfully install our roofing systems.
Onsite assessments are undertaken for completed projects. This allows Viking Roofspec’s Technical Specialists the opportunity to assess applicators’ competencies on live projects.
The onsite assessments provide assurance that a licence is not obtained purely in the classroom.
Qualification - An individual’s licence is obtained after completion of a nationally recognized qualification such as the ITO National Certificate in Membrane; or on becoming a Licensed Building Practitioner.
This stage demonstrates an applicator’s attitude and ability to complete the full programme and install a professional and watertight roofing system.
Stage 1 - Booking a Training Course
The training is conducted at Viking's purpose built-training facility; equipped with tools, welding equipment, materials and modules to perform detailing on - to ensure the highest level of training is provided.
Applicators are shown how to install the roofing system and then given the chance to do it themselves, with direction from Viking's professional trainers.
