The focus of our Association has always been on our Members, to ensure that quality products, compliant with SABS Standards are produced. However, the best insulation can be ruined if not correctly installed.
With the promulgation of the Energy Efficiency Regulations in 2011, roof insulation became compulsory in certain new buildings and extensions. There has always been different formal trade occupations registered in South Africa, such as carpenter, bricklayer etc. but no official training on the installation of thermal insulation. TIPSASA decided to rectify this matter by developing a training course to ensure that the necessary skills and knowledge needed to work in the thermal insulation industry, is provided.
Formal registration is in progress with the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) and the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) and the official training will commence in 2018. The Insulation Installer , as it is registered on the Organizing Framework for Occupations (OFO) consists of two part qualifications, one, Building Insulation Installer and two, Industrial Insulation Applicator, addressing the specializations in the industry.
