Roofing Professionals

Other trades have relied on SkillsUSA as a pipeline system for new workers since the 1960s. SkillsUSA is one way for the roofing industry to improve the perception of the industry and directly recruit students committed to entering the trades. As an industry, if we were able to recruit even 5% of these graduating students, we would have more than 5,000 new roofing workers annually.

Contractors

You can get involved with SkillsUSA by donating funds and materials for the national championships. But the best thing to do is locate a school in your area that is associated with SkillsUSA, build a relationship with that school, and offer to teach and/or assist with getting roofing curriculum into their program. NRCA will provide schools access to its TRAC Thermoplastic Roof Membrane Installation program at no cost. To learn more, contact NRCA Director of Workforce Development John Esbenshade.

Manufacturers/
Distributors

To benefit from SkillsUSA, you can develop relationships with schools and offer to teach or donate materials or funds. Ideally, one or more of your roofing contractor customers would also be part of this relationship to serve as potential trainers and future employers.

NRCA invites roofing organizations to join the Roofing Pavilion at the national SkillsUSA event to talk to students and CTE teachers from throughout the U.S.

To explore participating in the Roofing Pavilion, contact NRCA Director of Workforce Development John Esbenshade.

Industry Organizations

State and regional roofing associations are in a great position to coordinate with contractors and other roofing industry professionals to plan a SkillsUSA effort within states.

Specialty organizations that focus on specific populations within the industry are well-poised to participate in the Roofing Pavilion and provide demonstrations and/or hands-on activities for students and educators.

To explore participating in the Roofing Pavilion, contact NRCA Director of Workforce Development John Esbenshade.
