Training for Roof Application Careers

Now available—significantly reduced pricing for TRAC!

NRCA developed Training for Roof Application Careers (TRAC) to help the industry address ongoing workforce issues. Your company can use TRAC to provide new and inexperienced field workers with information and skills to help them become quality roof system installers who thrive in their careers. All TRAC content is available in English and Spanish.

To help you train as many workers as possible, NRCA has significantly reduced the price for TRAC packages. Every roofing company can afford to use these quality training materials:

  • Asphalt Shingle Installation Package (includes Steep-slope Onboarding): $249 member; $299 nonmember

  • Steep-slope Onboarding: $149 member; $199 nonmember

TRAC ultimately will include each roof system type. A TRAC package for EPDM roof membrane installation is coming soon!

TRAC is designed to provide new and inexperienced employees with "conversational competence." This means they understand:

  • Terminology that helps them engage with foremen and crew members in helpful, rather than burdensome, ways
  • Concepts familiar to the roofing trade
  • Duties and responsibilities they can expect to engage in as crew members
  • Hands-on skills (included in certain packages) they will develop in their journeys to becoming competent
  • Your company will take the time to train them rather than using a "sink or swim" method of onboarding
