Advanced Certifications for Tile Installers

Social share icons

There are nine Advanced Certifications for Tile Installers (ACT) available, each with its own set of specific requirements and time limits for completion. These certifications involve hands-on evaluations that assess various critical aspects essential for each certification. Critical points refer to specific tasks that must be executed according to TCNA, ANSI, or product manufacturer's standards; failure to do so results in test failure.
