Built-Up All phases of built-up roofing are taught by experienced journeyman roofers, that are accredited to teach at MATC. Class starts with safety – personal protection, fall hazards, proper use of safety line and guardrails, and dangers of burns from hot asphalt.
Built-Up OSHA Introduction Electrical Safety Fall Protection Personal Protection Equipment Cranes Excavation A 10 hour OSHA certified safety course is given for the following subjects.

Asphalt shingles are installed on mock-ups the apprentices build. All safety, estimating application, and measure backs are performed on the apprentices mock-ups and roofs constructed by MATC carpenters. A field trip is also done to apply these learned skill on a house or structure. The previous year a church house roof was done. This incorporates the estimating, job planning, leadership, detailing skills taught in school.
Steep Class continues with wood shingles and shake. The patterns, exposures, details, ventilation, board spacing, and felting for shakes are taught in hands-on demonstrations. Slate is also covered. The types, weight concerns, special tools, patterns, application, details, and repairs.
