Education and Training Requirements

High School

Most employers prefer to hire applicants at least 18 years of age who are in good physical condition and have a good sense of balance.

Students can also take courses that familiarize them with some of the skills that are a regular part of roofing work. Beneficial courses include shop, basic mathematics, and mechanical drawing.
