The SFIA Certification Program for Professional Contractors and Truss Fabricators

The SFIA Contractor Certification Program enables professional contractors and truss 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 Management System and Code of Ethics, 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.
