The ProCertification maintenance process allows NRCA ProCertified® individuals to demonstrate continued professional development and their commitment to continuing education and professionalism. The maintenance process is not only necessary to uphold the integrity and validity of ProCertification but also to validate certified installers and foremen continue to possess and display the knowledge, skills, abilities and professionalism that were demonstrated to earn their respective certifications.
Maintenance for your ProCertification Roof Installer or Roofing Forman certification is required every three years, and though you are responsible for keeping track of your certification expiration date, NRCA will help keep you on track by contacting you during your three-year cycle.
Every three years, ProCertified Installers and Foremen can maintain their certifications by completing and documenting a designated number of hours of system-specific work experience along with technical and safety training.
ProCertified individuals who hold a certification in more than one system will need to complete maintenance for each certification held. Technical and safety training hours may be used toward the maintenance for multiple certifications if they were completed within three years of earning each certification. A separate maintenance fee will be required for each certification.
|Certification type||Hours of system-specific experience||Hours of technical training||Hours of safety training|
|ProCertified Roof Installer||400||12||30|
|ProCertified Roofing Foreman||1500||12||30|

NRCA’s policy is to randomly audit a percentage of all Certification Maintenance applications, requiring that documentation or verification of all completed hours be provided. This verification may come in the form of written documentation from an employer or training provider along with descriptions of the training received. For this reason, it is strongly encouraged all certified installers and foremen keep records of all training during each three-year cycle.
If you are randomly selected for an audit, you will be notified via email.
