Rosemont, Ill.—The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) announces the launch of the NRCA ProCertification program, a national certification initiative for roof system installers and foremen. Through a series of assessments, NRCA will certify workers who meet certain requirements and then issue a verifiable professional certification.
Experienced roofing workers can demonstrate their skills and knowledge to become a certified roof system installer in specific roof system applications and disciplines. Certifications now available include NRCA ProCertified Thermoplastic Systems Installer (e.g., TPO, PVC), NRCA ProCertified Asphalt Shingles Installer and NRCA ProCertified Roofing Foreman. Certifications soon will be available for all system disciplines.
A roof system installer certification is earned by passing a two-part exam—online and hands-on.
Benefits to certifying your workforce include strengthened customer and supplier confidence; increased productivity; consistency of installation; improved safety; enhanced reputation and position in your local markets; and increased profitability.
NRCA ProCertification™ is designed to create a competent, sustainable and high-performing roofing industry workforce.
