CERTA training demonstrates how proper roof system configuration design and application techniques can result in fire-safe installations. In 2003, insurance industry representatives approached the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) to address concerns about increasing incidents and losses occurring from roofing workers' torching activities. There was a clear need for focused safety training addressing torching activities, and as a result, the CERTA program was developed. The current CERTA program provides the best practices and newest industry requirements for torching activities.  CERTA delivers these requirements through a certification program where authorized trainers deliver effective behavior-based training to roofing workers. NRCA continues to make sure the program is up-to-date and of the highest quality. There is no comparable training program available in the roofing industry.
