When you’re hiring a specialist for a specific job, you expect them to have the background and experience that supports their specialty. That might include education, training, and previous work. In construction, an important factor to consider when hiring a finishing contractor — or any contractor — is certification.
Why should you choose a certified finishing contractor? Finishing contractors specialize in finishing work, and those who are certified have completed education and training to prepare them as experts in the industry.
At Diversified Interiors, partnering with Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry (AWCI) as a Certified EIFS installer, our team holds certifications as Certified EIFS Mechanics and Certified EIFS Industry Professionals.
Why Is Certification Important?
To become a certified EIFS finishing contractor, the contractor must complete the EIFS Industry Professional Education and Certificate Program to demonstrate knowledge and mastery of the skills needed to perform EIFS finishing work. This includes successfully completing coursework, attending workshops, and participating in hands-on training opportunities.
And it doesn’t stop when we receive certification. As AWCI members, we work to maintain our certification by taking advantage of ongoing opportunities to further develop our skills and stay informed with industry updates.
“Our company has benefited from AWCI membership in several ways,” said Diversified Interiors, in a feature highlighted within AWCI’s recent annual report. “We utilize the webinars and Doing It Right training workshops to support the professional development of our staff. We attend the annual convention and expo to stay current on new products and services in our industry. It provides us the opportunity to learn from the successes and challenges of our peers in other parts of the country.”
The report highlights the impact of AWCI’s more than 2,500 members within the industry. Diversified Interiors is proud to be part of this national group.
