CERTA Train-the-trainer Reauthorization
May 22, 2012
Authorized CERTA trainers need to renew their accreditations every three years, and this program provides an opportunity to complete the required reauthorization. This class is significantly different from the original 10-hour train-the-trainer course. You will advance your training and facilitation skills and demonstrate your skills using a roofing torch. In addition, you will receive training that specifically addresses the requirements of the CERTA applicator recertification class. You will work through lunch during this six-hour program (a boxed lunch is provided). If you fail to become reauthorized within six months of your eligibility expiration date, you will be required to retake the original 10-hour NRCA/MRCA CERTA Train-the-trainer Authorization course.
NRCA mails reminder notices regarding renewal requirements to all authorized trainers six months, three months and one month before their eligibility expires. You will have a six-month grace period to complete your reauthorization training; however, you may not schedule or conduct torch applicator certification classes during this six-month grace period.
Program prerequisite: Participants must have passed the original 10-hour CERTA authorization course and conducted some type of formalized training within 12 months before the expiration of their authorized status.
Note: You will have a six-month grace period after your expiration date to complete the CERTA Train-the-trainer Reauthorization course. You will not be able to schedule or conduct a torch applicator certification class during this six-month grace period.
Each Train-the-trainer Reauthorization attendee is required to complete a pre-qualifying questionnaire and submit it prior to the start of the class. Please download the CERTA Train-the-trainer Reauthorization pre-qualifying questionnaire and fax to Janice Davis, NRCA's manager of risk management and education, at (847) 299-1183.

"I have attended numerous NRCA classes with Bill Steinmetz and Harry Dietz as the instructors. As usual, they put on a program so that the material was easily understood, planned time for student interaction and kept it light so as not to be boring. I always look forward to an NRCA program and having Bill and Harry as instructors is always a bonus!"
—Donn J. "Buddy" Shallcross, Tecta America East, Salisbury, Md.
