ICF Training Seminars
Training is a key element in building up the ICF market,
and creating an experienced ICF contractor base gives credibility
to the product and success in sales. Training and support
are the keystones to better buildings, construction efficiency,
and profitability for everyone involved.
The entire industry has benefited tremendously over the years
because of ARXX Walls & Foundation's
commitment to training. Their first training class was in
February 1996, and since then, they have trained over 33,000
contractors in the classroom and more than 4,500 contractors
in the field. In addition, we’ve presented specialized
training to more than 1,400 architects through the American
Institute of Architects (AIA).
It’s best to have ICFs installed by a builder that
has been trained by the ICF company that he plans to use.
With over 80 ICF companies in the market, the installation
techniques can differ dramatically.
We understand that it is very important to provide a complete,
intensive day of training. A typical class is approx. 7-8
hours in a classroom with the product. The course covers everything
from job set-up and tools, though building, bracing, and pouring
the walls, to installing waterproofing , finishes, and utilities.
After successfully completing the classroom training and
passing a written test, all participants are required to be
reviewed in the field on their own project to gain full certification
as an ARXX Installer.
