>>Certification Candidates Urged to Complete Requirements
The SPFA is fielding more and more calls and emails from consumers looking for SPFA PCP Certified SPF Professionals.  We are happy to provide names of the PCP Certified Professionals, but we need your help to make sure YOU are included!  There are many individuals who have started on the path to PCP Certification, but haven’t completed it yet. We urge you to do so since consumers are looking for contractors who are certified!

Likewise, many companies are on the path to the SPFA Contractor Company Accreditation, but haven’t met all the requirements yet. As soon as you do, we’ll make that distinction known via our website and other applicable avenues.

Both of these distinctions are tremendous accomplishments! They are distinctions that set you apart from your competition. These are the distinctions that put the consumers' mind at ease. If you aren’t sure what you still need to do to complete the requirements, please contact our SPFA PCP Staff at or 866-222-5000!

Applicators – this is the perfect opportunity to complete your Field Exam which is required for the Master Installer Certification.  Look for more details in the coming weeks!
