Get your workers ProCertified®!


What is ProCertification?

Through a series of assessments, NRCA will certify workers who have met all of the requirements for each type of roof system installation, allowing them to earn professional credentials. NRCA also will certify foremen and other mid-level roofing company personnel.

The goals of NRCA ProCertification are to:

  • Create a career path for industry field workers.
  • Elevate the roofing industry to be on par with other trade professions that currently offer national certifications.
  • Address workforce shortages by making the roofing industry more appealing.
  • Protect consumers by providing national, professional certifications for those doing work on their homes or buildings.
  • Educate consumers about the value of hiring NRCA ProCertified® roof system installers.
  • Increase consumer confidence that workers have the knowledge and skills to do the job well.
