Get Certified as a Haag Certified Inspector-Residential Roofs

Haag's industry-changing HCI-R program is now available to qualified individuals online for the first time!

The HCI-R course was introduced to the industry back in 2007, since then Haag has certified 18,000 roof inspectors in the US and Canada.

This course will teach you inspection techniques on assessing damage to steep slope roofs:

  • Asphalt Composition Roofs
  • Wood Shingles and Shakes
  • Concrete and Clay Tile 
  • Slate
  • Synthetic Roof Materials
  • Metal Roofs

Each section of roofing materials will cover the manufacture, installation, weathering, hail & wind damage, mechanical damage, and repair techniques for that roofing product.  In addition we will also discuss basic weather and physics principles, roof inspection safety, and repair vs. replacement cost analysis.

Completing this course will make you a more accurate, fast, and confident roof inspector of steep slope/residential roofs!  

Please note that this course does require minimum field experience of 100 residential roof inspections.  You will be asked to verify experience and provide references who can also vouch for your experience upon registration.  Haag does perform random experience verification audits. 

A live, online proctored exam will be administered at the completion of the course. This will require a computer equipped with a webcam and proper system minimum requirements. You have up to 4 hours to complete it and must pass with a minimum score of 70% to finalize your certification. If you score below 70% on your 1st attempt, you will only be allowed one retake exam.
