NRCA and RIEI combine efforts

NRCA’s Education Section and the Roofing Industry Educational Institute (RIEI) have been combined into NRCA’s Education Resource Group. The group currently is offering educational programs on a contract basis and will begin to offer them publicly this fall. The fall programs will feature updated versions of popular RIEI and NRCA courses, such as RIEI’s Roofing Technology course and NRCA’s For Foremen Only program.

The group’s vision is to be the world provider of expert, unbiased, relevant learning opportunities, and its mission is to identify, create and deliver educational offerings relevant to customers’ needs.

The group will be operated by NRCA’s Education Resource Committee, which is composed of contractors and three at-large members who represent various industry sectors, such as manufacturing, consulting and architecture.
