Is your company seeking a stronger position to leverage your expertise?
Do you have a talented, experienced and knowledgeable staff that deserve to be recognized for their professional abilities?
Challenge your company to meet the standards set forth by this industry program certifying foundation contractor firms in the residential cast-in-place industry. Your registration gives you access to a six-part series program that will benefit your company and market. The goal of certification is to unify the industry with a common measurement of competency for concrete foundations and the companies that install them.
To establish consistency in validating the quality assurance in the residential concrete foundation industry.
Create a recognized network of residential foundation professionals that, given the interest or requirement, can be relied upon for performance, business solvency and product quality.
Certification of companies or individuals is a topic found in all segments of the construction market as builders and code departments attempt to establish competency and accountability in construction. The market is becoming increasingly complicated with small and large companies competing for the same business at the risk of the client.
No one wants more regulations, hindrances, or requirements in order to operate their business, but the CFA believes it has a responsibility to the industry to anticipate the possibility of these needs and to put programs in place to address them. Certification is coming and we would prefer that the program is generated within the industry as opposed to having outside forces dictate our program.
Ultimately, this program will be promoted to builders, state and local building code jurisdictions, and other potential organizations or companies that may be considering, or might consider in the future, a certification program. However, simply looking at what a certification can mean to your local market might be advantageous. There are distinct marketing advantages to employ once your staff has reached the Certified Foundation Technician and when your company has reached the Certified Company.
