Roof & Facade Training

Back in 2015, we proudly launched the Tegral Academy as part of our initiative to raise the standards of roofing in Ireland. Still today it remains Ireland's only dedicated roofing training centre. Since then we have welcomed over 1,000 roofers into our factory and training centre in Co. Kildare.

With the transition from Tegral Building Products to Cedral, our academy has evolved into the Cedral Academy. We are excited to now include both roof and façade training in our free, one-day course. We remain Ireland's sole manufacturer of fibre cement slates and proud Guaranteed Irish members, committed to supporting local products and jobs while continually raising roofing standards.
