After completing the ProForeman certificate program, a roofing company employee should be able to approach his or her
job with confidence and competence as evidenced by the following:
Ability to speak with company personnel and customers about job sites, providing rationale for approach to work
plans and safety system choices.
Ability to articulate aspects of effective crew, company and customer leadership.
Ability to train others regarding roofing safety and working on a roofing crew.
Company sponsorship is a requirement for this program. Certificates are awarded to participants and companies jointly,
recognizing achievement on both parts. Also, a specific person will be required to be a sponsor for each participant.
Some program components are chosen and tailored by the company, and those decisions should be made jointly by
participants and sponsors. NRCA will communicate with both parties in all program administration. One of the
prerequisites is for the sponsor to have participated in a sponsor webinar.
