RoofCERT – the roofer’s accreditation scheme

.

Moran Roofing Specialists are supporting the NFRC and the CITB in their four-year programme to develop RoofCERT.  An industry-recognised accreditation standard for a roofing installer.
.
RoofCERT will focus on:
.
•Existing vocational qualifications
•The value of existing expertise
•Upskilling the workforce
•Attracting new talent
•Improving the image of the industry
.

RoofCERT is a collaborative programme delivered by the industry for the industry, involving employers across the supply chain, trade associations, training groups and other training providers.

.

They have stated “we all want roofing to be a trade that attracts the best talent and gives everyone in it the right skills and a recognised career path to make it a lifelong profession. Too often roofing is seen by the outside world as a place for cowboys. In fact, a recent survey carried out by Which? Magazine found that roofers were the least trusted of all the building trades, compared to electricians who come top in the league of trust.  That’s because, despite the good work, you deliver day in and day out, there are unskilled and inexperienced people that can simply set themselves up in business, affecting everyone else’s reputation in the process.”

The first in a series of events Moran Roofing Specialists will be attending is for London and Southern Counties RoofCERT on 30th November 2018.
