Become An Educational Speaker
Each year, RCI solicits abstracts for presentations to be given at the RCI annual International Convention and Trade Show and at the yearly Symposium on Building Envelope Technology. Read and respond to the calls for abstracts or papers.
Become an RCI Approved Instructor
An approved instructor must be technically sound, experienced in the topic, and practicing in the field being taught. To assure a broad-based technical soundness, instructors should be RRCs for roof-related courses and RWCs for the waterproofing offerings. There may be exceptions if the individual is highly qualified in a specific segment being taught.
One must also be an effective educator. This involves delivery technique, subject-matter knowledge, and the ability to relate positively with the class. To be included on the list of RCI Approved Instructors, an individual must have taught on two different occasions with high student evaluations and have attended an RCI Train the Trainer program.
