IDEA Two-Day Technical Schools

The IDEA is running three concurrent schools on Wednesday and Thursday, April 25-26. 

The two-day Rolling Steel/Rolling Steel Fire Door will be presented. Plus, a two-day school on Residential and Commercial Sectional Doors will be run at the same time. 

The classes are intended for experienced technicians and are not hands-on training courses.

Although attendees are not required to be enrolled in IDEA certification programs, the schools are ideal as pre-examination classes, and testing for related IDEA certification designations will be offered at the conclusion of the second day.

The exams offered for attendees who wish to earn certification at the conclusion of their selected school, are: Commercial Sectional Door Systems Technician Certification, Commercial Rolling Door Systems Technician Certification and Rolling Steel Fire Door Technician Certification.

The SuperTech!
Tricks of the Trade!

Panel and IDEA participants

Open to fully registered persons and door technicians registered separately.

Every experienced technician has learned some effective ways of doing things smarter, better or more efficiently – without cutting corners and taking shortcuts that will compromise safety or quality. Some have developed or discovered special tools that help them do their job better. Others simply have mastered their craft at a level that most can only imagine. This session will feature several industry field veterans who will share their expertise and tips with those who want to become the best they can be in the door and access systems industry.
