Workforce Recruitment Tools and Resources

NRCA Pro-Certification

It’s now more convenient than ever for experienced workers to become NRCA ProCertified. Rather than passing an online exam for each type of roof system, installer applicants now only need to pass NRCA’s low-slope or steep-slope online knowledge exam, which can be taken anywhere, any time, as many times as needed. Installers can even take the online exam before they apply for NRCA ProCertification to measure their readiness. Once installers pass the online exam, they are eligible to take the hands-on performance exam. NRCA provides the resources installers need to help them on their paths to NRCA ProCertification, and all content is available in English and Spanish.

Apply for ProCertification today!


Careers in Roofing

NRCA has launched a new website to inspire, engage and attract the next generation of roofing workers. 

Careersinroofing.com shows that opportunities for success can be found on the roof, in the shop, in the office, and in manufacturing and distribution facilities.

The website highlights career paths, wage information and training opportunities and provides resources for parents and educators so they understand the value and opportunities available in roofing.
