Roof System Installer Certifications

NRCA ProCertification requires roof system installers to pass two exams. The first is an online, multiple choice test. Passing the online exam makes a candidate eligible to take a hands-on performance exam to demonstrate installation skills while following industry safety standards.

Both exams were developed in accordance with rigorous international certification standards to ensure the exams accurately assess the skills and knowledge required by a professional roof system installer.

Online knowledge exam

ProCertification online knowledge exams assess a candidate’s essential knowledge for low- or steep-slope roof systems. Candidates must pass this exam before scheduling a hands-on performance exam. Interested candidates can take an online knowledge exam before applying for certification. Resources to prepare a candidate and links to the exams are available by clicking here.

Hands-on performance exam

The hands-on performance exam requires applicants to demonstrate system-specific installation skills and safety requirements. Exams are scheduled directly with a Qualified Assessor and can be conducted at a contractor's shop, an authorized testing location or during other scheduled performance exam events such as the annual International Roofing Expo®.
