Vocational qualification: accreditation criteria

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 admin, revision materials and certification.

Finally to gain accreditation, a signed declaration from your employer or yourself (if you are the business owner) is required to confirm that all the relevant health and safety training has been obtained.
