Roofers build, inspect and repair roofs for buildings using a variety of materials such as shingles, asphalt, wood and aluminum. Roofers may work on residential or commercial buildings. They perform routine inspections and maintenance on a building’s roof and determine the best repair procedures.  

Consisting of two levels, the NCCER Roofing curriculum will prepare an individual to sit for the NRCA ProCertification.  

This starts a career path for roofers to follow from education to certification. The NRCA ProCertification program uses a series of assessments for each type of roof system installation to certify workers, allowing them to earn professional credentials.  

The NCCER and NRCA partnership will help increase consumer confidence that these certified craft professionals have the knowledge and skills to do the job well.
