Accelerated Accreditation

Accelerated Accreditation accumulates the credits received at live events to speed you through the education requirements of Contractor College Accreditation. We are able to do this because, in contrast to simply viewing an educational video online, attending live events allows contractors to learn on a variety of levels by interacting with peers and industry experts. This will provide for targeted problem-solving and growing one’s solution-network. Business documents still need to be submitted through the normal process, but the education requisites are out of the way!
