These courses are an ideal way to stay up to date with Florida and OSHA’s construction regulations.

NRCA’s 10-Hour Program
The NRCA’s 10-hour construction program is an introductory course that is specially designed to help workers to discover potential safety hazards that can be found in their day to day work lives. The class will include video segments of job-site scenarios that show typical hazards and their solutions. This information is essential if you need to know what the requirements are for safety and health standards. Once this course is completed, trainees will receive an OSHA 10-hour safety training completion card. This course benefits anyone in the construction industry, but specifically: safety directors, superintendents, roofing contractors and workers, and foremen
NRCA’s 30-Hour Training Program
NRCA University offers a comprehensive OSHA 30-hour training program. During this training program, a more in-depth version of the 10-hour course, trainees will learn how to use the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to find applicable standards for any roofing work and be able to recognize workplace hazards and how to find OSHA-compliant solutions for them. During this training there will be discussions on the safety hazards that can occur during roofing work, including but not limited to: project setup, system demolition and construction, project break-down, on-site roof maintenance and service work, and roofing contractors’ yard operations. The 30-hour program will also go over OSHA’s four most serious safety hazards in construction work: electrical, struck-by, caught-between and fall-related hazards. This 30-hour course is designed for safety directors, managers, supervisors, administrators, trainers, roofing workers, and for any others with safety responsibilities.
