JM Roofing Institute™ — Better Roofing Through Education
As low-slope roof technology, materials and performance demands evolve, it is important to keep up with new materials and technologies. Johns Manville has developed an education and development initiative that builds on over 150 years of experience in commercial/industrial roofing.
Practical Knowledge To Improve Business
Open exclusively to our Peak Advantage Program members, JM Roofing Institute courses are designed to provide practical experience that will enhance day-to-day operations. We provide hands-on experience to improve roofing installation techniques and good work practices. Classroom sessions extend beyond installation procedures to address business issues such as improving productivity.

JM is pleased to announce On-The-Road Training at our manufacturing facilities located in Scottsboro, Alabama and Milan, Ohio. We will be offering 1-day workshops featuring hands-on training along with a tour of these state-of-the-art plants. Classes are highly recommended for superintendents and crew leaders. The curriculum can easily be brought back to the office and is delivered in a "train-the-trainer" format.
Under the umbrella of the JM Roofing Institute™, the Better Understanding of Roofing Systems Institute (BURSI®) educates architects, consultants, roofing contractors and building owners on the latest roofing system materials, technology and design. In over 35 years of operation, more than 60,000 roofing professionals have been taught using the BURSI curriculum.
The Johns Manville Roofing Institute focuses on the continued education of roofing contractors, architects, and building owners in an effort to construct the most energy efficient, durable and healthy buildings possible.
