SKOKIE, Ill., May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CPG Building Products, the leader in premium, low maintenance, exterior building products, is proud to announce an important milestone — graduating more than 1,000 industry professionals from CPG University since the brand's integrated training efforts launched in 2015.
For several years, thousands of dealers, distributors and contractors graduated from AZEK® University in Scranton, Pennsylvania and TimberTech® University in Wilmington, Ohio after getting a first-hand look at each brand's innovative products. The revamped program, CPG University, offers the best of both universities with free courses to train building professionals about AZEK and TimberTech's premium building materials and best in class applications. Hosted at both locations, CPG University teaches identical content so attendees can select the location and date that best suits their schedule.
"I really enjoyed my experience at CPG University, and I felt like a V.I.P," said recent attendee, John Bridgham from Sundeck Designs Inc. "The knowledge I took away was invaluable. The plant tour really gave me some great insight as to what quality products CPG Building Products is producing, and the tour and class presenters were both knowledgeable and personable. The questions posed by participants and answers from staff were very informative and I left feeling more confident than ever in recommending TimberTech and AZEK products to my customers. It's easy to sell a product you believe in, and I'm more of a believer now than ever."
A typical day at CPG University includes hands-on work with AZEK and TimberTech products, including deck, porch and rail building, and trim, moulding, paver and siding demonstrations. To ensure everyone gets a chance to participate in the hands-on demos, enrollment is capped at 12 people per session at the Scranton facility and 20 per session at the Wilmington facility. The Wilmington facility was recently renovated to provide even more classroom and building space.
"Over the past two years, we've had the pleasure of welcoming and training more than 1,000 industry professionals to our plants for hands-on experience and in-depth training on all of our products in an intimate class setting," said Jason Grommon, president of CPG Building Products. "The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, leaving our valued partners with information, inspiration, and confidence to better understand all the uses for and applications of our AZEK and TimberTech products."
