Training

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 occupancy classes in all 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 qualification to ensure that the necessary skills and knowledge needed to work in the thermal insulation industry, is provided.

It has been formally registered with the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) – Qualification ID 109560.

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.

Skills Development Providers (SDP’s) are in the process of being registered with the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) and training will commence in February 2020.

We are constantly approached by Professionals to assist with continuous professional development. Our Association will gladly assist and also do have professionals available that present courses endorsed by our Association. Current courses available are on SANS 10400-XA Energy usage in buildings – should you be interested, please contact us for more information.
