The EIFS—Doing It Right® program consists of two days of classroom instruction, given in a format that promotes interaction between the participants and instructor. The AWCI program offers generic EIFS education, which is not product specific; referral to the manufacturer is advised as tasks and situations dictate. Slides, video clips, graphic animation and real-life scenarios portray the range of material. For a sample program agenda, click here.
Participants will learn the theory behind the process and gain contacts and information from networking. The instructional material is based on industry-recognized documents and was carefully reviewed by a variety of experts in the EIFS industry. A manual is distributed on site. This is a narrative-style summary of the entire presentation and supplemental material. Participants are expected to study the manual in preparation for the exam. Also, this text serves as a good reference resource.
At the conclusion of the educational portion of the programs, a multiple-choice exam is given to objectively test the participants' knowledge considered necessary to properly apply and/or evaluate EIFS. Participants who meet the established criteria for experience and education and successfully pass the exam will be awarded certification from AWCI stating that adequate knowledge was attained and demonstrated through testing. Certificate holders are then expected to comply with AWCI's "Codes of Conduct." One of the requirements pertains to conflict of interest situations.
