Therma-Tru Launches Certified Door System Installer Training Program

December 17, 2018

MAUMEE, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 17, 2018--Therma-Tru Corp. has partnered with the OSI ® brand to create the Certified Door System Installer Training Program to better serve trade professionals by educating them on the best practices for sealing and installing Therma-Tru door systems. The convenient, online-based program is free of charge.

“Our new certification program is designed to help contractors build knowledge, skills and confidence by educating them on the best way to install a Therma-Tru door system,” said Eric Dotson, senior manager, channel enablement for Therma-Tru Corp.

The Therma-Tru Certified Door System Installer Training Program includes step-by-step videos, featuring experts from Therma-Tru and OSI ®, that guide the user through new or replacement door system installation. The videos cover a variety of topics including identifying necessary tools, correct removal of an existing door, the best way to seal an opening and install a new door, adding finishing touches and more.

“We recommend OSI ® products and we’ve partnered with them on this program because they are the experts in construction sealants. Leaks often come from the area surrounding the door, not the unit itself. Providing instruction on how to properly seal the opening ultimately reduces costly callbacks and enables trade professionals to provide better service if an issue should arise,” said Todd Kippel, senior manager, technical sales and customer engagement for Therma-Tru Corp.

The comprehensive training program also offers an in-depth lesson from OSI ® on Building Science and Wall Barriers. Program participants will have access to supplemental video content and helpful job aids for quick, jobsite reference, including instructions that can be viewed digitally or printed.

“The program enables contractors to complete it on their schedule, from any location,” said Kippel. “It allows us to provide convenient access to training for trade professionals located in rural areas, major cities and everywhere in between.”

Upon successful completion of the program, participants receive a certificate and credential card, proving their status as a Therma-Tru Certified Door System Installer and indicating that they have received the additional training necessary to ensure professional results.

“Today’s consumers are more savvy than ever before. They’re highly influenced by ratings and reviews, meaning one bad installation can have an immediate negative impact on business,” said Dotson. “When a contractor becomes a Therma-Tru Certified Door System Installer, that gives them credibility with homeowners and sets them apart from other professionals in the market.”
