Professional and industry certification is a proven means to indicate that your company has gone the extra step to separate yourself from the competition. Accreditation is a designation of professional excellence. It provides recognition to qualified painting and decorating contractor companies, allowing them to distinguish themselves by meeting key qualifications and abiding by industry best practices as defined by their peers. As an accredited PDCA contractor, you have the industry approval of being a dedicated, ethical, and better business owner. Accreditation provides the customer with the comfort that they have chosen a certified professional.

How to Become an Accredited Member of PDCA
PDCA Accreditation requires secure submittal of a company’s business information – financial data, safety management and training, relevant insurance policies, and licensing (where applicable) – as well as completion of a selection of Contractor College courses. Accreditation requirements are outlined on your Accreditation Dashboard. All referenced course work is available online in the Course Catalog, organized by subject.
Companies will be given a 24-month period to complete the requirements for Accreditation, starting on the date of enrollment to the program. Companies that fail to complete the requirements within this time frame must start the process over if they wish to pursue Accreditation. This includes the submission of all business documentation and the completion of all education requirements. Upon completion of your Accreditation you will be invoiced a $199 administration fee. You will be notified of payment due by the status of your Accreditation dashboard.
