Licensing Guidelines & Application

Ready to get your Roofing Contractor License? Follow the steps below to get started:

Step 1: Download the guidelines and application using the link found below. Verify your eligibility for licensing based on the guidelines.

Step 2: Register for a Boot Camp & Testing Session (see list and registration links below). Fees/Payment is collected during this step. If a session in your area does not appear on the list yet, skip to the next step to get your approval process started. Additional dates may be added based on demand in a certain market. Application approval is valid for one year.

Step 3: Complete the licensing application and then sign in front of a notary. For faster processing and fewer errors, we prefer that you type directly on to the electronic .PDF application form instead of hand writing the information.

Step 4: Mail (or email) the completed and notarized application form along with your certificate of general liability, workers compensation insurance; OR completed DWC Form-005 if you do not carry WC to the RCAT address found at the bottom of the application form.

Once  you have made payment AND the committee has approved your application, you will be notified via email. At that time you will be provided with the password to access the "Study Portal" section of this site which holds the RCAT study materials. We also highly recommend that you purchase the NRCA Roofing Manual - 2017 Box Set from which the roofing exams are created. Please contact us if you have any questions.
