>>Equipment, Materials and Supplies Needed for Field Exams 
SPFA PCP is pleased to announce Field Examinations for candidates seeking Master Installer Certification in either Roofing or Insulation will be conducted during the SPFA Convention in Albuquerque, N.M., on Monday-Tuesday, January 26-27, 2015. They will be held at the Convention Center where the SPFA Convention and Tradeshow is being held.
We've received commitments from some groups who are interested and willing to contribute. We are not necessarily looking for new equipment, but medium-age equipment will also be useful. 

We will be offering Open Cell, Closed Cell and Roofing Field Examinations, so all the relevant materials, equipment and supplies must be available and this is where WE NEED YOU!!!  In addition to traditional SPF Suppliers, we will have the expense of renting tents, lights, heaters, tables and chairs - sponsorships of these items is also available with a monetary contribution. In addition, it would be helpful to have a technical representative available to answer questions, troubleshoot and deal with any malfunctions.

We will highlight your company's contributions in conference proceedings, signage, the SPFA magazine and as appropriate on-site at the SPFA Convention and Tradeshow.  If you are interested or need additional information, contact Kelly Cook Marcavage, SPFA PCP Certification Director at 571-748-5003.

This is also a great opportunity for Suppliers to have their SPFA PCP Certified Field Examiners assist and become vetted so they can start doing Field Exams on their own! Detailed information on how to become an SPFA PCP Certified Field Examiner is outlined in the Field Examiner Certification Handbook at

>>CEUs for SPFA PCP Re-Certification Will Be Available at Sprayfoam 2015
By attending conference sessions at Sprayfoam 2015 in Albuquerque, N.M., attendees can now earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) when they attend approved sessions. For example, each of the SPFA breakout sessions on January 28-29, 2015, have been approved for 1 CEU. More details about how to attain these CEUs will be available in the near future.

Every five (5) years, PCP Certified Individuals need to be re-certified. Part of the re-certification requirement is meeting a CEU requirement, which is based on your certification level. Individuals have 5 years to meet this requirement, but we are making every effort to get you started soon, so this requirement is already fulfilled when the time comes for you to re-certify.

More details will be posted to by the end of the month. If you have questions, please contact Kelly Marcavage at
