PHOENIX, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Spray foam and roofing equipment and supplies provider, Intech Equipment & Supply, (www.intechequipment.com) announced Dennis Alter has earned professional certification from the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA). An independent trade association, SPFA is the collective voice, as well as the educational and technical resource, for the spray polyurethane foam industry.
The SPFA Professional Certification Program is the only one of its kind for the spray polyurethane foam industry. As international ISO-17024 standard compliant, the SPFA certification program offers credibility and comprehensiveness. Given the diversity of the spray polyurethane foam workplace, the program includes a variety of categories and levels of certification.
The SPFA certified Alter as an instructor and field examiner. To become a certified SPFA field examiner, candidates must meet several criteria. They must be pre-qualified and complete a written exam. Unlike other programs, the SPFA field examiner certification requires mandatory training in addition to testing. Once certified, recipients must complete periodic continuing education to maintain their certification status.
"With his SPFA credentials and years of experience, Dennis is a tremendous resource to the spray foam markets," said Jake Jacobson, director of business and market development for Intech Equipment & Supply. "The thorough and demanding certification process educates recipients on industry best practices.
"To become certified as a field examiner, Dennis had to complete mandatory training in addition to rigorous testing," continued Jacobson. "Because no higher certification standard exists in our industry, our customers can have confidence in the work Dennis performs."
Alter joined Intech Equipment in December 2013 as the southeast technical service manager. Based in the company's Rutledge, Georgia branch, Alter supports operations throughout the southeastern United States.
