Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence
Professional, educational programs geared specifically to the roofing industry given by experts in the roofing industry! Over 230,000 professionals in the USA, Canada, and Mexico have attended CARE courses.
Roofing Can Be a Difficult Industry
- There is limited training available for roofing professionals
- Roofing is consistently a top complaint category at the Better Business Bureau
- Thousands of dollars are wasted in roofing annually
- In an NRCA study, "Roofer" was listed #248 out of 250 desirable occupations
CARE is Committed to:
- Providing Non-Biased Content: CARE is not biased toward any single roofing technology. All roof systems have strengths and weaknesses. CARE courses focus on the information needed to make the right choices for individual owners, buildings, and budgets.
- Avoiding Common Mistakes: CARE courses focus first on how to avoid the most common mistakes made in roofing and roofing systems.
- Giving You Not Just "What" but "Why": Traditional training follows a "Do This" approachnever telling the student "Why" one way is better than another. CARE courses always use the "What and Why" method of education for superior results and full understanding.
