VSI Installer Certification Program Update – Big Announcement!

Effective January 1, the Vinyl Siding Institute has reduced the previously required industry experience from two years to one year for installers wanting to train for and seek VSI Certified Installer status. The requirement can also be met now with two consecutive semesters of VSI-approved installer certification curriculum via an accredited educational institution.
