An important consideration

Since Roof Integrated Solar Energy™ (RISE™) Inc. began conferring its Certified Solar Roofing Professional™ (CSRP™) designation in 2010, nearly 50 individuals from 20 states and Canada have passed the comprehensive exam and hold the elite distinction.

The CSRP credential proves the individuals have been evaluated and certified as solar energy installers for knowledge regarding critical roof system construction and maintenance practices necessary to support successful rooftop solar energy.

As solar rooftop options become more prevalent, more building owners will seek roofing professionals with extensive knowledge of solar and photovoltaic (PV) roofing options. A CSRP has that knowledge and will bring considerable expertise to any rooftop solar or PV project.

To help candidates obtain the knowledge necessary to pass the exam, RISE offers several online resources, including a study guide. And this year, NRCA and Penn State, University Park, Pa., developed a special CSRP online study course to further prepare individuals for the CSRP exam.
