Do you think you’re good? Prove it. PDAA* Certification shows you can handle any installation job with confidence. The Architectural Films (windows, walls, and floors) designation shows the world that you can handle any standard architectural film in a typical industry setting — retail stores, trade shows, banks, offices, etc.

*PDAA stands for Professional Decal Application Alliance

Architectural FilmsThe Architectural Films designation starts by signing up and completing the online course for Architectural Films: Windows, Walls, and Floors. Then, it's time to attend a training and certification event, with hands-on training and testing in a unique two-day workshop. You’ll receive training on tools, tips, and application techniques and then show what's expected for a successful test. Your work will be evaluated by some of the industry's leading installers.

This certification is designed to test that an installer has the skill set, the knowledge of industry terms, and the proficiency with all the tools necessary to install any standard architectural film in a typical industry setting (retail stores, trade shows, banks, offices, etc.). Testing stations will include a wall with an inside and outside corner, a round column, a floor graphic, a wet and dry application window graphic, a rough textured surface, and a steel locker unit.

PDAA Certification Means Business

For years, PDAA Master Certified has been the only certification not tied to any vinyl manufacturer. The testing has been rigorous, and the nationwide listing on Find an Installer* has been the gold standard connecting end-users/customers with this installer group.

“As soon as I got put on the Find an Installer list on the PRINTING United website, I began to get phone calls for quotes on installs. I get calls frequently!” — Kristen Lanzarone-Scribner, WrapStar Pro (Sacramento, Calif.)*
