When you pass the exam, you’ll experience many exciting opportunities from the VSI Certified Installer Program, including:
To become a VSI Certified Installer, you must have at least two years of installation experience. If you have less than two years of experience, you may still participate in the program, but you will not receive your certification until you obtain the required experience.
