March 9, 2016

(Chicago, IL) - To help keep participants informed about program updates and changes, AISC Certification has released Certification Bulletin 2016-1: Current Participant Conversion to Standard Based Erector Certification Program. The bulletin is available at

This bulletin provides information required to convert certified erectors with certifications expiring in September 2016 or after to the new requirement-based AISC certification program, which is mandatory for all participants.

The new requirement-based AISC certification program supersedes the former erector checklist criteria and existing categories (Certified Steel Erector and Advanced Certified Steel Erector). The updated program is designed to ensure participants have quality procedures in place and demonstrate that they are following them, which serves as an effective way for participating companies to communicate their commitment and capability with respect to quality.
