CERTA classes

NRCA University provides train-the-trainer classes to authorize CERTA trainers. CERTA-authorized trainers then can conduct training classes for roofing workers who want to become CERTA-authorized applicators.
For information about train-the-trainer authorization classes, click here.

Participants are taught how to properly use personal protective equipment and first-aid procedures specific to torching activities, torch equipment safety, rooftop fire hazard identification and mitigation, and post-torch work fire-watch techniques. For a summary of torching application guidelines, see "New CERTA Guidelines."

A certified roofing torch applicator must renew his or her certification status every three years. A CERTA-authorized trainer also must renew his or her accreditations every three years. NRCA University also provides CERTA train-the-trainer reauthorization classes.

Roofing contractors employing CERTA-authorized applicators will typically identify their CERTA-trained personnel to illustrate their companies' commitment to safety. CERTA-authorized applicators receive and carry a personalized CERTA identification card noting their successful completion and status in the CERTA program.
