CRA's Introduction to Roofing course will expose your employees to the basics of roofing and teach them what they are doing, why they are doing it and upon completion give them an understanding that roofing can lead to several career paths within the industry. Retaining good employees is important to all of us and providing them the education they need is a proven method of retention!

This is what some of our students had to say about the course:

"Taking this roofing course has increased my ability and confidence in helping meet the needs of my clientele even more than I had anticipated. I found it to be extremely beneficial to the future of my career in the roofing industry."

"The hands-on experience is by far the 'key' to this course and roofing in general."

"As a service tech, I have seen a lot of improper installations of roofing and I have grown to recognize necessary specs that are not code or required. Steve the instructor of the course has been aware and demonstrates the correct, more efficient way of installation."

"Overall, it has been a very good learning experience for me. I am still very new to this industry and this class has given me excellent insight to the many perspectives and opportunities that roofing has to offer."
