A Sustainable Workforce Starts With You

Chamberlin U Graduates Waterproofers

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.
