As class members’ skills, experience, aptitude, and special requirements varies, the course will be directed to the knowledge-base and skill level of the students in each course to ensure the most productive learning atmosphere. The following is the general curriculum for this course:
Every student will get personal attention and assistance with their assignments.
1-2 sheet of copper per student. Copper sheet is preferred as copper is malleable and thus, though more expensive, is ideal to learn on.

Class will include:
Basic Architecture Knowledge:
Properly applying metal roofing for water proofing buildings
HANDS ON PORTION
-Learning and practicing folded corners.
-Learning and practicing complex round and folded corners.
-Practicing on mock-ups using the above practices with real-life designs and applications.
-Practicing drip edge and ridge connections on mock ups.
Students often have questions about a present or future project they are/will be working on. We save enough time to address these questions and, as appropriate, present them as case-studies to the entire class so all can learn from them.
