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."
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
