Certification process

A roof system installer certification is earned by passing a two-part exam:

Part One—Online exam

The candidate takes a proctored, roof-system-specific online exam

Part Two—Hands-on performance exam

The candidate will be instructed which tasks he or she must complete to demonstrate installation skills, including safety requirements. The candidate schedules the exam directly with a local Qualified Assessor and performs the exam at a Testing Location. A Qualified Assessor observes and scores the performance. For more information, call (866) ASK-NRCA (275-6722) and ask for NRCA's Certification Department or email certification@nrca.net.
