Individual Drafting Accreditation is the best way to start

The Individual Drafting Accreditation (IDA), offered as a component of the Quality Certification Program (QCP), is one of the industry's most highly-recognized quality assessment tools for architectural woodwork.

Industry Professional Support

Experts from the architectural woodworking, construction, and architectural professions collaborate to help drafters and detailers deliver shop drawing submittals and architectural woodworking plans that comply with AWI standards.
It's an essential way to integrate consistency and industry best practices from the very beginning stages of a project. An invaluable addition to a resume, it builds a drafter's reputation as an industry expert.
