Why join the Association of Accredited Certifiers?

  • We are the industry body representing the interests and views of a specialist profession
  • We Represent the Profession to Government and key stakeholders

  • We provide educational, technical and administrative support to Members

Accredited Certifiers play a unique role in the building industry, often facing legislative issues and other pressures that add extra layers of red tape or add unnecessary pressures potentially affecting their livelihoods.

A single stand-alone Certifier will find it hard to respond to these issues, but as a united group, with a thriving Association, we can encourage positive and enlightened outcomes for the benefit of our member and the community.
