How To Get QCP Licensed
3 Simple Steps to Get Licensed
Obtaining your Quality Certification Program (QCP) license is a powerful demonstration of your commitment to precision, quality, and compliance, amplifying your prospects to win more bids, streamline projects, and deliver excellence.
Getting licensed is a simple process that lets you keep your focus on doing what you do best - creating top-notch products. Although only the elite and committed companies qualify for QCP license, we've made sure that the path to get there is easy and clear.
Pass the Required Tests
Gather References, Provide Samples, and Undergo Inspection
The third step of the process involves various elements. Firstly, provide a total of 10 trade references. These should be a mix of general contractors, design professionals, and project owners.
Next, prepare and present shop drawings for the samples that match the QCP licenses you aim for, ensuring they align with AWI Standards. Finally, your company will undergo a licensing inspection. A QCP representative will evaluate the samples you've made, check out a couple of your completed projects from the past two years, and make sure your business dealings align with the Eligibility Guidelines.
QCP License Application Guidelines
Only woodworking companies (not individuals) are eligible for QCP licensing.
Licensing is available for Manufacturing, Finishing, and Installation, or any combination thereof.
QCP applicants must specify a Custom or Premium Grade quality level for any license they seek. A Premium Grade license allows certification of both Custom and Premium work.
Applicants have one year from the date of application acknowledgment to complete the QCP licensing process.
If licensing is not accomplished within one year of your initial application, you will need to reapply, pay the application fee again, and complete all steps of the licensing process again, including any steps you have already completed.
Application fees are non-refundable.
