An important aspect of Chamberlin's quality initiative is Chamberlin University. Chamberlin 'U' was conceived and developed in 2006 and implemented as part of our strategy to prepare Chamberlin for the future by earnestly training and educating our own workforce. Chamberlin has graduated hundreds of craft workers and superintendents from the course and invested thousands of hours in Chamberlin University-specific training and education.
Educating Chamberlin team members on safety, technical skills and soft skills empowers them to deliver quality, cost-effective projects that are completed safely and productively. Chamberlin University helps us deliver more to our clients. Below are our most recent graduates in Houston, Texas. We are proud to have these technicians as part of our team.

Our graduates come from two recent apprenticeships. The waterproofing course started with instilling the importance of Chamberlin’s values and using them in the job every day. In addition to the basics of waterproofing technology, the waterproofing industry, waterproofing assemblies and jobsite safety, the following modules were completed:
BENTONITE WATERPROOFING HOT AND COLD FLUID APPLIED Multi-layer sheet Pouring procedure Self sealing Vertical vs. horizontal application Bentonite laminating Melting hot fluid Polyethylene film Reinforced membranes Vertical vs. horizontal application JOINT SEALANTS AND FIRE CAULKING FLEXIBLE FLASHING Resistance rated wall Sheet membrane Roof assemblies Counterflashings Local building codes Remedial flashings Manufacturer Specifications Parapet Proper application WEATHER BARRIER SHEET METAL Sheet membrane Offset miters Liquid membrane Through-wall flashing Air/vapor barrier Window flashing Moisture barrier End dams Damp proofing Termination requirements Snip techniques PAVERS Soldering techniques Stone Pre-cast concrete PLAN GRID AND QA/QC
By participating in the bentonite waterproofing training the students earned their Hilti Certification. Carlisle provided the air barrier systems, accessories and waterproofing systems for the cold and hot fluid applied trainings and the training was conducted by Tremco. The pavers system curriculum was presented by Wausau. Chamberlin prides itself on doing what they promise and then some, going the extra mile with a spirit of cooperation and a can-do attitude. Congrats to all!
