Making ProCertification® Accessible For All!

NRCA PROCertified
February 2, 2023 at 3:00 p.m.

By Evelyn Witterholt. 

By hosting ProCertification events at their facilities, IB Roof Systems is making roofers’ dreams of becoming ProCertified a reality. 

For roofers who are looking for a way to set themselves apart from their competitors, consider becoming ProCertified! Through the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) ProCertification Program, roofing workers can expand their skillset by learning the ins and outs of specific roof system installations, including metal, asphalt and tile. Although there are assessments within the program that can be done online, each certification requires a hands-on performance exam afterwards.  

In a recent podcast, CEO of IB Roof Systems, Jason Stanley, spoke with us about how their company has been making the ProCertification program more accessible to the industry. He describes the program as one of the greatest things the association has ever done, as it has created a universal standard for roof installations. However, the program first launched around the time of COVID, making it harder for contractors to get certified. 

That’s why this last year, IB Roof Systems has hosted a few ProCertification events at their facilities in Texas. At the time of recording the podcast, Jason says that their first kick-off event was a success. “It was great to see so many people in attendance,” Jason said. “And then we took commitments from those people that attended the event to do the first-ever large-scale ProCertification.” 

The company’s future plans for events were to get 32 people ProCertified in one day, which he hopes would set a good example for other companies to hold their own events. Jason believes that by becoming ProCertified, members of the roofing industry will gain a sense of pride in what they do. He also believes that his company and other companies will soon be requiring some of their crew members to hold a ProCertification of some kind. 

“I think ProCertification will gain greater adoption when the individual sees the value in the card,” he said. “When this becomes an industry pride thing, and people want to have their credentials and they understand that I need this card to go to work”
