Certificates awarded by AWCI are valid for a limited time. The EIFS Mechanic and EIFS Industry Professional certificates are valid for five years, and the EIFS Inspector certificate for three years. The certificate's expiration date is listed on the certificate and wallet card, and also on the National Certification Registry.

  • Prepare yourself to meet future mandates and insurance requirements.
  • Receive an updated certificate and wallet card.
  • Continue to be listed on AWCI's National Certification Registry.
