Advanced-Certifications-for-Tile-Installers

Proud to Have Earned the ACT Designation!

The Advanced Certifications for Tile Installers (ACT) program evaluates the skills and knowledge of tile installers and currently offers certifications in seven specific areas of tile installation.  An installer may choose to become ACT certified in one or more of these areas:

ACT certification in each area is granted upon successful completion of a written online test - designed to measure the installer's understanding of applicable ANSI specifications and TCNA recommended methods - and a field test conducted by trained, third party evaluators who assess the installer's skills under real life conditions. 

On this page, we proudly list all of those who have earned the ACT designation. They are Qualified Labor whose tile installation work exhibits best practices endorsed by the entire Tile Industry.
