The brand new accreditation programme for the individual has arrived! This is Roofing’s equivalent to the Gas Safe Register & there is a development programme to professionalise the sector nationally. It consists of a knowledge test specific to roofing, mandatory training courses, VQ & experienced worker route and agreed CPD to keep operatives up to date and renew accreditation
