ASA, FASA support constructor certification. (Newsline: for the latest industry developments).

The American Subcontractors Association (ASA) and the Foundation of ASA (FASA) have taken support of the professional constructor to a new level. The presidents of ASA, FASA, the American Institute of Constructors (AIC) and the AIC Education Foundation signed a partnering agreement on March 17, 2002, that further strengthens ASA's and FASA's commitment to constructor certification.

The agreement states the groups' mutual understanding to encourage a higher ethical standard for professional constructors and the need to improve the professional image of constructors. "ASA and FASA will redouble efforts to educate lawmakers, industry leaders, educators and students about the importance of and practical need for certifying the professional constructor," said FASA President Dick Kohls, vice president of finance, The Fenton Rigging Co., Cincinnati, OH.

As part of the agreement, the groups said they would work together to encourage public and private corporate policies recognizing the Certified Professional Constructor (CPC) and Associate Constructor (AC) designations and encourage institutions of higher learning to promote and recognize professional constructors. "The agreement provides a unified voice when speaking to owners and other built environment professionals of the value certified constructors bring to a project and the industry as a whole," said AIC President James Redlinger, AIC, CPC, vice president, Redlinger Brothers Plumbing, Watertown, S.D.
