Why have a company training program?

As a professional working in the roofing industry, you can grow your business and increase your company's profitability by expanding and enhancing your workforce. With the prospect of workforce shortages continuing in the roofing industry, you need to ensure you are maximizing the productivity of every employee. By offering exceptional worker training to new hires and midcareer workers, you will help retain existing employees and attract new ones.

Training is a critical component of improving employee quality and productivity. Not only will your new hires be up and running faster, but they also will know you are investing in their futures, so they can enjoy a successful career with your company and in the roofing industry.

The benefits of having a company training program include:

  • Formalized curriculum will enable your new employees to be productive faster.
  • Implementing standardized best practices means less installation problems and callbacks.
  • Increased productivity results in consistency of installation and completing more jobs using your existing workforce.
  • Career enhancement provides current, experienced employees the opportunity to learn another roofing discipline(s).
  • All these things lead to lower costs, higher revenue and improved profitability for your company.


To help your trainers improve their training skills and become more effective, NRCA has developed a Qualified Trainer Conference, a state-of-the-art, three-day classroom and hands-on educational program that gives them the tools they need to be exceptional trainers.

What are NRCA Qualified Trainers?

NRCA Qualified Trainers are professional trainers and coaches for your team. When they complete NRCA's Qualified Trainer Course and become recognized NRCA Qualified Trainers, they gain access to NRCA's training resources. They also will possess the focus, dedication and knowledge to:

  • Train new employees, getting them onboarded faster and more efficiently
  • Provide guidance to midlevel employees looking to further their careers
  • Assist seasoned employees who are pursuing NRCA ProCertification


NRCA Qualified Trainers are a must-have for any roofing company. They provide leadership and consistent direction to your employees; the result is increased pride of workmanship, quality, worker retention and, subsequently, your bottom line.

I already do training in my company; why participate in NRCA's Qualified Trainer Conference?

By participating in an NRCA Qualified Trainer Conference, you will gain practical, how-to training skills while becoming a recognized NRCA Qualified Trainer. New trainers will gain a strong foundation in critical training skills, and seasoned trainers will be introduced to best practices for delivering powerful workforce improvement presentations and effective hands-on training.

Participants will learn about how NRCA ProCertification works, including its goals, policies and procedures, and the Job Task Analysis skills required of installers for receiving a certification(s) through NRCA ProCertification. In addition, the conference includes assessments of participants' hands-on coaching abilities, presentation skills and training knowledge. NRCA Qualified Trainers will be uniquely suited to coach roofing company employees from the beginning of their careers all the way through certification.

Additional benefits of becoming an NRCA Qualified Trainer include:

  • Verifying trainees' successful completion of training
  • The ability to train and coach employees testing for certification
