EFI/Vale Specialist Program – Roof

EFI and Vale are focused on advancing the knowledge, skills, and abilities of those involved in property inspections, to properly observe, evaluate, assess, and estimate roofing damage.

Overview

80% of insurance losses today are building envelope related, specifically in the area of residential and commercial roofing issues. To process these claims quickly and accurately, it is essential for  property adjusters and appraisers to have a qualitative understanding of assessment considerations specific to roofing systems.  To meet this need, Vale Training and EFI Global, a leading engineering and fire investigation, environmental and technical consultancy, have teamed together to create the EFI/Vale Specialist Program – Roof certification (EVS/R™)  program.    

The EVS/R™ classroom course is a 4 day course that provides detailed information on steep and low slope roofs, including construction, coverings, storm damage assessment, damage estimating, product identification and repair methods.  For hands-on experience, this course also includes simulated hail mockups to illustrate impact dynamics on different roofing systems.

Becoming an EVS/R™ certified specialist involves being qualified to take the course, being accepted into the course following your application, and successfully completing both the course and exam.

EVS/R™ must be renewed every three years. The renewal includes a renewal fee and 12 hours of industry related continuing education through attendance at seminars or industry classes in roof estimating, roof construction, fall protection or property damage assessment. Any registrant who does not have the requisite hours of CE must retake the course and pass the exam to remain certified.
