New Program Requirements

AISC Certification is pleased to inform our valued participants about helpful updates to our program requirements: we have created new program requirements for both the Bridge and Highway Metal Component Manufacturers Program and the Sophisticated Paint Endorsement, plus we have updated the program requirements for all other certifications.

Now consistent in format, the program requirements provide transparency and simplicity for our participants about the governing document for each certification program and endorsement. The new and updated program requirements continue to reference the same AISC certification standards as the previous versions. Additionally,the use of consistent requirements across all of our programs provides clarity to your marketplace—owners, DOTs, architects, engineers, general contractors, etc.—who will gain a better understanding of all of our programs, which are now similar in structure.

New requirements apply to all participants and applicants starting August 1, 2017. Certification Bulletin 2017-3 provides instructions on the process and timeline for the rollout of the program requirements listed below:
