 Announcing the SFIA Certification Program for Professional Contractors

The SFIA Contractor Certification Program enables professional contractors to distinguish themselves in the competitive landscape by demonstrating proficiency in cold-formed steel (CFS) framing. Certified SFIA contractors receive recognition for continuous improvement, education and training, and quality control systems – all of which are independently verified via a written test and rigorous observation of CFS installation techniques.

Certified contractors adhere to the SFIA Quality Assurance Program and Code of Conduct, which promote industry standards that ultimately lower costs and speed approvals. In return, they are provided with marketing resources and promotional support to increase their reach to design professionals, general contractors and owners looking for proven CFS expertise.

Who is eligible?

Steel Framing Industry Association members who are professional CFS contractors are eligible to become certified. If you are not currently an SFIA member, we invite you to join now to take advantage of this national program. The annual cost of membership for contractors – which includes your entire organization – is just $185.

What’s involved?

Certification is a straightforward, three-step process designed to measure your CFS experience and expertise:

  1. Complete a program application
  2. Take a comprehensive written exam via a third-party testing organization
  3. Undergo an on-site observation of your CFS installation skills and adherence to standards

What are the benefits?

SFIA-certified contractors become part of a national referral program targeted to design professionals, CFS and component manufacturers, specifiers, general contractors, and owners. In addition, the SFIA provides certified contractors with marketing and promotional tools they can use to expand their reach and create lasting partnerships in the construction industry.
