Compliance, Consistency and Quality

Doing the job right the first time is essential in the woodworking business. Equipping yourself with the proper tools for success is key to a thriving career. The AWI Quality Certification Program (QCP) not only provides a strong foundation, but it also allows you to deliver compliance, consistency and quality to your clients.

Becoming a QCP-licensed woodworking firm and following the guidelines set out by QCP ensures that your projects meet Architectural Woodwork Standards (AWS) certifications and other compliance and quality expectations. The process streamlines your efforts, helping you deliver excellence on every project.
