Through PDAA certification, your company holds verified proof that their installer has the skill set, the knowledge of industry terms, and the proficiency with all the tools necessary to install many types of rigid signage hardware and signage in a typical industry setting (retail stores, trade shows, banks, offices, etc.). Testing stations include Stud and Pin Mounted Lettering and Signage; Cleat Mounted; Standoff Mounted Signage; Suspension hanging systems; SEG installation in a frame; Security Mounted Hardware; ADA or Wayfinding signage; and others.


Your company must be a PRINTING United Alliance corporate member and have a PDAA Certified Installer on staff to be listed on the Find an Installer site with the Rigid Signage certification. Training for this first event will include each station's demonstrations and tips and tricks for a successful installation. This event offers training and testing. The successful installer will receive a digital badge to share their achievement. Installers who are corporate members of PRINTING United Alliance will be listed on our exclusive Find an Installer directory with the badge earned next to their listing.

This training will be held at Capital INK, 2239 Distribution Circle, Silver Spring, MD 20910.
