The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) has always been a proponent of educating roofers. They believe that through education, roofers can increase their professionalism by learning and applying valuable skills. NRCA built the ProCertification® program for qualified roofing workers to become nationally certified in specific roof system designations, to create a career path for field workers and to elevate the industry to be on par with other trades.
Foreman Leadership Training, Level 1 focuses on leadership and management skills for field managers. After completing Foreman Leadership Training, Level 1, participants will be able to:
Member Price: $695
Nonmember Price: $995
It’s now more convenient than ever for experienced workers to become NRCA ProCertified Rather than passing an online exam for each type of roof system, installer applicants now only need to pass NRCA’s low-slope or steep-slope online knowledge exam, which can be taken anywhere, any time, as many times as needed.
Installers can even take the online exam before they apply for NRCA ProCertification to measure their readiness. Once installers pass the online exam, they are eligible to take the hands-on performance exam. NRCA provides the resources installers need to help them on their paths to NRCA ProCertification, and all content is available in English and Spanish.
NRCA ProCertification Qualified Assessors are designated in specific types of roof systems for which they evaluate the hands-on performance of roof system installers seeking NRCA ProCertification. Qualified Assessors must complete system-specific computer-based training, demonstrate technical and safety competence and pass a computer-based exam.
Qualified Assessor designations are currently available in asphalt shingle, clay and concrete tile, EPDM, and thermoplastic roof systems. Ultimately, more than a dozen designations will be available for all major roofing, waterproofing and rooftop photovoltaic system installations plus roof system repair and maintenance.
To get started, review the Qualified Assessor Quick Start Guide and eligibility requirements. Once you’ve read and understand these guidelines and requirements you are ready to complete your application.
