Did you know the National Roofing Contractors Association is a SkillsUSA Official Business Partner? Since 2019, NRCA has been partnering with CTE schools to increase the roofing industry's outreach in career and technical fields. These partnerships help establish roofing as a core curriculum in schools, in turn helping NRCA members find skilled workers ready for careers in the roofing industry.
NRCA members have access to SkillsUSA’s nationwide list of CTE partners and schools that feature comprehensive architecture and construction programs. These schools often seek roofing experts to present or teach a class, so you might have the opportunity to promote roofing—and your company—as a desirable career path to young adults.
Here is how to jumpstart your relationship with CTE schools:
1 – Find a nearby technical or trade school (high school or college) with a carpentry program.
2 – Meet with an administrator or SkillsUSA representative about adding roofing as an elective to the carpentry program.
3 – Use NRCA's website as a resource to promote roofing careers.
5 – Contact NRCA’s Director of Workforce Development John Esbenshade (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss SkillsUSA and NRCA’s Training for Roof Application Careers programs.
We encourage you to find and partner with a school near you and herald in the next generation of roofing workers!
Since 1886, the National Roofing Contractors Association has been the home for generations of entrepreneurial craftsmen and enterprises who shelter and protect America’s families and businesses and each other. Our vision is the recognition of our members as professionals and to unite the industry to that purpose. NRCA is one of the construction industry’s most respected trade associations and the voice of roofing professionals and leading authority in the roofing industry for information, education, technology and advocacy.
