First-of-its-kind roofing qualification

The Coverland brand has become synonymous with roofing in South Africa after a valuable more than 70 years supporting local markets.

The roof, an important element of the home, is the core of providing shelter and protection. It also provides a reflection of individual legacy, growth and personal aspiration. For BMI Coverland, it’s never just a roof, and together with their customers, they are building new horizons.

Building new horizons is not limited to their products, systems and services, but also the communities where they aim to make a positive impact through playing an active role in the upliftment of people with opportunities to empower themselves, develop their skills and build a better career. At BMI Coverland, they believe it is their duty. 

To ensure we have a sustainable roofing industry in South Africa, we need a complete ecosystem, where we can create the best story that can be told in South Africa. BMI Coverland believes in formalising the skills in the roofing industry and providing roofers with an opportunity to grow and progress their careers.

Therefore, they created the BMI Coverland Roofing Academy. Based in Roodepoort and Polokwane, this roofing academy provides training that leads to two SAQA accredited courses: National Certificate: Waterproof and Roof Repair, NQF 2; and National Certificate: Timber Roof Erecting, NQF 3.

By focusing on theoretical and practical training, trainees complete their programme with the relevant knowledge to put their newly learnt skills into practice. BMI Coverland is in a fortunate position to leverage its global training and research knowledge developed in Germany, the United Kingdom and France, ensuring that they provide high-quality training courses that benefit the local communities, people and overall roofing ecosystem.

Training is open to anyone seeking to gain skills and obtain a formal roofing qualification. They invite developers and roofing contractors to get in touch with them to train their teams and thereby increase the quality of workmanship across their projects.
