SMART-Start Metro Roof Installation Training

Metro’s SMART-Start Installer Training Program is designed for your crews to learn first-hand the skills to correctly install a Metro roof.
We offer two formats for training:
SERVICE CENTER SITE: Pay for a Metro Training session per person at a pre-set date & time at the local Service Center.  We provide classroom setting for up to six (6) trainees with lunch provided on the full day.  Accommodations and travel are your responsibility.  Two (2) days (one full day and one half day). You must provide a minimum of one (1) installer to learn the Metro details, and who can impart their learned knowledge to others in your company.  A class is required to have a minimum of three (3) attendees, if this minimum number is not met, the class will be cancelled and your fees will be allocated to a future, full, class. These classes will cover all profiles and installation methods of the Metro System.
ON-SITE: Pay for a Metro Trainer on-site for Two (2) days ($500.00 USD/day), to help train your installers on YOUR Metro job. Metro Trainer’s travel and accommodation fees are covered in the program base fee of $1,000.00 USD.  You must provide a minimum of one (1) installer to learn the Metro details, and who can impart their learned knowledge to others in your company.  Due to safety and liability concerns, the Metro trainer will perform the training activities on the ground and can, if provided, direct the installers up on the roof from a man-lift. This class will cover the profile and method of the specific project.
CONTRACTOR: Complete an on-line registration form indicating the training dates you desire; we will verify the dates can be accommodated and set-up a training session.  Please identify your local Metro distributor so that contact may be made to have them participate in your experience, if available. For on-site training, the contractor is required to have a complete Metro Installation Kit (Foot Bender, Top Bender & Cutter) before any training can take place. This kit is available from your local metro distributor.

For on-site training, most roofs require more than Two (2) days to finish & Metro makes no claim that the roof will be complete prior to the end of the Two (2) days of training. If upon arrival at the site, the Metro Trainer discovers no materials, competitors’ roof material, no competent staff, or no equipment previously requested (Installation Kit, etc.), then Metro reserves the right to cancel the SMART-start Installer Training immediately. NO REFUND WILL BE PROVIDED. Metro assumes no liability for delays caused by weather related situations and no refunds shall be made for delays of this kind. Weather delayed paid sessions will be applied to future training date(s). The contractor is solely responsible for following the local code requirements and obtaining the necessary permits for the job. Metro assumes no liability for workmanship and reserves the right to terminate the on-site training if the contractors staff being trained do not accept or follow the Metro Trainer's instructions. A $550.00 minimum charge shall be applied if this occurs.
