Apprenticeship Program

The primary goals of the URCA Apprenticeship Training Program are to improve the quality of craftsmanship and safety conditions in the industry as well as assisting employees in becoming familiar with the different facets of the trade. Our valued customers can be assured that URCA member companies utilize the most skilled and well-trained employees in the industry.

Graduating Apprentices complete a paid curriculum of three and a half years of classroom education and “hands on” fieldwork. Apprenticeship training includes roof systems application training and safety training. Safety is of utmost importance and apprentices must attend all safety training courses including First Aid, CPR, Fall Protection, Fire Safety, Scaffolding, Confined Space, as well as mandated OSHA courses. Graduates of the Apprenticeship Program become “roof mechanics” in their trade and are considered the best in their craft.
