To insure consistency in construction standards and systems utilized in DoD facilities, common design criteria and requirements have been developed and incorporated into Unified Facilities Criteria (UFCs). Roofing is one of the areas covered by UFCs. Roofing designs associated with Military projects now rely extensively on commercial industry standards. However, there are some limitations in the applicability of commercial standards to Military projects as delineated in UFC 3-110-03.
This 6 hour course explains how to apply the NRCA Manual and the MBMA Roofing manual to the design of Military projects (including Air Force, Army, and Navy).
This course requires the completion of a multiple-choice quiz at its conclusion in order to obtain the necessary certification.
At the conclusion of this course the student should be able to:
This course is intended for design professionals, engineers, architects, facility planners, contracting personnel, and contractors, responsible for roofing planning, system design, installation, and maintenance of military projects.
