ARLINGTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 04/18/14 -- Demilec is oﬀering an exam preparatory seminar to assist contractors and installers to certify under the SPFA Professional Certification Program (PCP). Demilec's SPFA Assistant and Installer level proper course will help prepare the attendees to take the SPFA examinations for the Assistant and Installer levels. In addition to this classroom training, a Technical Service Representative will visit your jobsite a few weeks after the course and conduct further hands-on training.
The prerequisite for SPFA's Professional Certification Program is the CPI Health and Safety Training - High Pressure, which can be completed online at http://www.spraypolyurethane.org. Demilec asks all attendees of the training seminars to take this valuable training, pass the test and have a current certification number prior to attending the classes being held. Demilec will teach the class assuming that attendees have completed the CPI Health and Safety Training and have reviewed the SPFA PCP's Assistant and Installer level material, which will be sent electronically after registration. Consult your local Territory Manager or Technical Service Rep if you have any questions about the training material.
Day 1 is a review of the Assistant level curriculum and the Assistant level exam. Day 2 is a review of the Installer level curriculum and the Installer level exam. Participants will have 2 hours to complete each exam. Following the Installer level exam on day 2, we will discuss Demilec products, including spray foam systems and Blazelok fire coatings.
Hands On Training
After the course, Demilec's Technical Services Reps will contact each attendee and make an appointment to come to a jobsite and work with the attendee in the field for a day. Their TSR's are extremely knowledgeable and will share tips and tricks to enhance safety, productivity, quality and yield. They'll work from a checklist of SPFA PCP Learning Objectives and explain and demonstrate procedures and techniques specific to Demilec spray foam systems. The Demilec TSR's will also review rig maintenance, troubleshooting and address any question the field crew might have regarding spray foam.
SPFA Certification Exams
All SPFA PCP exams are available on a reservation basis. In accordance with the SPFA PCP policy, all who take the exams must first be registered into the program, have CPI Health and Safety certification, and must take the exam required for a given level and all lower level exams. Each test is about 100 questions with a 2 hour time limit. We can accommodate others who want to take different SPFA exams during the 2 hour test period at the end of each day. Exams other than Assistant and Installer level must be reserved at least two weeks in advance. Attendees will register for the SPFA PCP on the SPFA website and pay exam fees directly to the SPFA accordingly. A description of the SPFA PCP is online at http://www.sprayfoam.org/index.php?page_id=4557.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
