Established in 1886, the National Roofing Contractors Association is one of the construction industry's oldest trade associations and the voice of professional roofing contractors worldwide. It is an association of roofing, roof deck and waterproofing contractors; industry-related associate members, including manufacturers, distributors, architects, consultants, engineers and city, state and government agencies; and international members. NRCA has more than 3,500 members from all 50 states and 42 countries and is affiliated with 86 local, state, regional and international roofing contractor associations. NRCA contractor members range in size from companies with less than $1 million in annual sales volumes (45% of the current membership), to large, commercial contractors with annual sales volumes of more than $20 million. Greater than half perform both residential and commercial roofing work, and more than one-third have been in business for more than a quarter of a century.
NRCA's 134th Annual Convention will be held in conjunction with the 2021 IRE.
CERTA Training Program
The CERTA training program is ideal for contractors whose work involves torch applications. The full-day program trains experienced roof system installers on the safe use of roofing torches used to apply polymer-modified bitumen roofing products. CERTA training shows how proper roof system configuration design and application techniques can result in fire-safe installations. CERTA training sessions are offered each year at IRE (advance registration is required).
Through NRCA ProCertification, NRCA's national certification initiative, experienced workers who demonstrate substantial roofing skills and knowledge can become certified by NRCA in specific roof system installations. All information, materials and tests are available in English and Spanish.
Training for Roof Application Careers
NRCA developed Training for Roof Application Careers (TRAC) to help the industry address ongoing workforce issues. Your company can use TRAC—which includes English and Spanish content--to provide new and inexperienced field workers with information and skills to help them become quality roof system installers who thrive in their careers. To help you train as many workers as possible, NRCA has significantly reduced the price for TRAC packages. Now every roofing company can afford to use these quality training materials.
