Storm Shelter Construction Education and Credentialing Program

By

The MCAA's Storm Shelter Construction Education and Credentialing Program will be held October 27, 2017 in St. Louis.

The Storm Shelter Construction Education and Credentialing Program will show the end user and designers that your company is serious when it comes to proper installation of a high windstorm shelter. The program was created partially in response to the new code requiring schools to have storm shelters.

The program is broken down into five different topics:

  • Introduction and Background
  • Quality Control and Quality Assurance
  • Reinforcing and Grouting
  • Anchoring Dowels at Foundations
  • Connections
The courses are specifically designed for the installer and cover every facet critical to the successful installation of a storm shelter. Upon completion of all five courses, the participant will earn a Credentialed Storm Shelter Installer (CSSI) credential. A certificate and card will be mailed to the participant.
