Follow Us:

AWI's Quality Certification Program is a industry-recognized risk management tool that design professionals and building owners rely on to validate the skills and abilities of architectural woodworkers. By writing into contract documents that woodwork is to be certified by AWI you eliminate potential worry about woodwork woes at the very beginning of a project.

A project can be registered FREE by any team member - architect, specifier, general contractor or woodworker bidding on the project. Registering a project helps AWI provide project team members with better design and technical support and enables certification of the work.

AWI's Quality Certification Program is endorsed by the American Subcontractors Association (ASA) and the Construction Specification Institute (CSI).

Certification credentials are earned by woodworking firms who, through comprehensive testing and inspection, demonstrate the ability to fabricate, finish and/or install work in accordance with the quality grade criteria set forth in the Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS).

Effective June 2014, the Standardized Minimum Sample Criteria for Licensing has been updated

"My company was among the first to get licensed when the AWI Quality Certification Program began in 1995. I saw it then, and I see it now as a real asset to the architectural woodwork industry. The program levels the playing field, placing all bidders on equal footing."
