The Institute for Timber Construction South Africa (ITC-SA) has announced its next CPD-accredited Roof Inspection Training. The professional body for the engineered timber construction sector will be hosting the training at its head office in Isando, Gauteng from 21-23 May 2019.

2019 accredited roof inspection training course announcedThe course comprises an intensive theoretical and technical overview of timber roof structures. Throughout the three-day period, course attendees will be exposed to basic terminology and timber structure design, framing and bracing, design consideration for light and heavily loaded timber roof structures, manufacturing, transportation and storage, and the various timber roof structures and types of buildings. Attendees will also enjoy first-hand engagement with the roof inspection process, visiting two different construction sites which clearly demonstrate correct and incorrect roofing practices.

The ITC-SA’s Roof Inspection Training Course has been accredited for 3 CPD points by the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA), registration number: ITCSA-INS0817. The course is designed to enable any technical person to conduct roof inspections with knowledge and insight, allowing registered professionals to sign off roofs on their own, knowing they speak with authority, and individuals with experience in the roof construction industry to be sufficiently trained to inspect roofs under an accredited ITC-SA Professional Engineer.

While all delegates who graduate from the training course will enjoy enhanced knowledge on the subject of roof inspections, not all of them will graduate as ITC-SA Certified Roof Inspectors. This designation is only obtained through compliance with a number of basic requirements including an academic component, practical or workplace experience, a board examination or competency assessment.

A Certified Roof Inspector is defined as a practicing professional who will traditionally come from the built environment, must have prior experience in roof design and construction, and should preferably have a recognised qualification (NQF level 5) in the built environment. A Certified Timber Engineer is a practicing professional who will traditionally come from the built environment, must have three years’ prior experience in roof design and construction, and must already be registered with the Engineering Council of South Africa as a professional engineer or professional engineering technologist.

Individuals wanting to attend this course should preferably have a year or more of post-matric education with science and mathematics, matric with involvement in roofs or Recognised Prior Learning (RPL). All candidates will write an assessment on the last day. However, candidates will be assessed continually over the course during discussions and especially during the two site visits. In order to receive a certificate of completion, the candidate must achieve a minimum of 70% on the assessment.
