Hands-On Training for Flintlastic®
Low-Slope Self-Adhered Modified Bitumen

“The roof is leaking!”  

Call Backs Hurt.  Whether you’re a building owner, contractor or manufacturer this phrase results in stress and frustration. Property owners risk loss and damage and both contractors and manufacturers risk reputation and profit.

The shortage of qualified labor and the retention of skilled labor is a major contributing factor to workmanship-driven failures. In part, this issue stems from a void in off-the-job learning opportunities.  

At CertainTeed, we believe our contractors are an extension of our brand; our materials are only as effective in providing durable rooftop protection as the skill set of the tradesman installing. We are committed to supporting the technical and professional development of our contractor community through education.

Trainees receive two days of in depth classroom (10%) and hands-on (90%) training and walk away with experience and confidence to support Flintlastic SA applications and the ability to reduce or eliminate installation errors.

Fun Facts

In 1821, the city of Little Rock was briefly renamed "Arkopolis" during a land dispute. The name can be seen on old maps from the era.

There is no official demonym for residents of Little Rock. Some prefer "Little Rockian," while others use the slightly more adorable "Little Rocker."

After the 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education ruling deemed segregation in schools unconstitutional, a group of black students known today as The Little Rock Nine made history as they were escorted into Little Rock Central High School by the Arkansas National Guard per President Dwight D. Eisenhower's order. A monument to the Little Rock Nine, "Testament," stands on the grounds of the state capitol.

"Little Rock" isn't just a cute nickname: It stems from an actual little rock. While leading a party of travelers, French explorer Bernard de la Harpe christened a certain small rock formation on the Arkansas River as La Petite Roche—“the little rock”—and the name stuck around once the area was settled.

Although the Clintons' name is splashed all over the city, from the airport to the presidential library, neither Bill nor Hillary are actually from Little Rock. Hillary originally hails from Chicago, and Bill was born in tiny Hope, Ark., about 115 miles southwest of the state capital. Their daughter, Chelsea, however, was born in Little Rock proper.
