Beachwood, Ohio (PRWEB) February 11, 2010
Philip Harper, PE (Registered Professional Engineer), and Jim Lohmann, senior sales representatives for Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance, recently earned the title of Registered Roof Consultant (RRC) from RCI Incorporated. They were registered as RRCs after successfully completing a rigorous, two-part program consisting of an application process and a daylong examination. The application process qualifies the individual’s field experience and industry education, while the exam tests both knowledge and problem-solving skills. Harper and Lohmann join an elite group of Registered Roof Consultants in the U.S. and Canada who incorporate the industry’s highest standards in the specification, design and construction of roofing systems.
A nine-year employee of Tremco, Harper supports eastern South Carolina, including metro Charleston and Columbia, and greater Augusta and Savannah, Georgia. Actively involved in the roofing industry, he is a member of RCI, Society of Military Engineers and the American Society of Civil Engineers.
