PDAA Certification

Written October 17, 2019

Growing your installation business requires certification created by objective installers who know the industry inside and out. It requires proven proficiency not tied to any specific product line or company, and proof that your company can do any installation job with confidence. PDAA certification is a strong tool for success. Through PDAA certification, you join the elite group of graphics installers who have achieved the highest degree of industry recognition and proficiency. PDAA Master Certification and listing on Find an Installer is open only to SGIA corporate members in good standing.
