Registration process — NFRC RoofCERT Roofing Accreditation

Registration process

Step 1: Registering on the RoofCERT programme

NFRC RoofCERT Roofing Accreditation has two routes depending whether you have a relevant vocational qualification (NVQ/SVQ) or demonstratable roofing experience. Click on the tab below which represents the best route for you: 

RoofCERT accreditation is currently available to skilled roofers who have a relevant vocational qualification (NVQ/SVQ) and 3+ years experience. A technical knowledge test must be taken either online or face-to-face at a RoofCERT Regional Training Centre. Currently we are offering one fully funded test per operative which includes set-up, revision materials and a certificate upon passing. Finally to gain accreditation, six mandatory health and safety courses must have been completed by each operative, covering the following topics:
  • ☑ Asbestos awareness
  • ☑ Working at heights
  • ☑ Manual handling
  • ☑ First aid
  • ☑ Fire safety
  • ☑ Abrasive wheels
Then it’s just a matter of uploading the necessary certificates to the RoofCERT system, as proof of competency and knowledge, which then get independently reviewed. If everything is in order, you get RoofCERT accredited! This review process and issue of your RoofCERT certificate is also currently fully funded. If you haven’t already done so register now!

If you have over 5 years’ experience working in your roofing discipline, but no vocational qualification, still get in touch, as RoofCERT is developing Experienced Worker routes to gaining accreditation which will be available shortly.
