AISC Certification

AISC Certification is more than a checkbox – it can transform your business, opening new opportunities and higher margins.
But the process, even for experienced fabricators, erectors and manufacturers, can be complicated. That’s why Atema offers a full stack of AISC certification assistance solutions for those new to certification, certified and improving, recertifying or adding new certifications.
From planning and goalsetting through training and documentation, Atema helps your organization get certified and leverage that certification for business improvement and expanded markets. Learn more about our AISC certification options:

HOW WE WORK

Onsite

Atema creates procedures with face-to-face interviews, developing documentation that is ready for application and trains your staff on how to prepare for the AISC audit, developing records you can include in your application package.

Best for: Companies that want the fastest comprehensive solution.

Remote

Our remote process takes longer than working onsite, however, it may be more convenient for you and your team. Sessions are scheduled based on client availability, cover standard elements and can include as many staff members as you wish.

Best for: Companies looking for schedule flexibility.

Combination

A large portion of the documentation is created prior to the visit, driven by teleconferences. The onsite visit is shorter than traditional onsite service.

Best for: Companies that want in-person training but a more streamlined documentation process.

What Our Clients Say

Fabricators, erectors and contractors know: Atema is the best AISC certification solution

When we started looking for certification assistance, we could not find anyone to help us with all the requirements.  One company could help with a bolt procedure, another with a welding procedure. Finally we found Atema and they were the only company who could take us through the whole entire process.  They understood all the requirements for certification and had the experience to create our system the right way.

… I want to say that I am impressed with the knowledge that  both of you have, and we are very happy with this final document. This is so much more practical and understandable than our previous version.  Also, I think that the management team has a much better overall understanding of what is expected from us to be AISC certified.

Margaret Wagner, Rast Iron Works

…Wanted to share with you the great news that during the last days of December we received the AISC Erection Certification (including both, Seismic and Metal Deck endorsements)! Thanks to you and to the Atema team we were able to prepare and go through this on-site audit with zero CARS!

Jonathan Eyton , Quality Manager, Hansen-Rice Inc. 

We contracted Atema to help us prepare a QMS for our upcoming AISC certification and they have exceeded our expectations. Our specialist went the extra mile in his research into our industries’ engineering and manufacturing standards to prepare our system and even taught us a few things about some industry changes. We are confident that with this QMS we will not only succeed in AISC certification, but we will turn out higher quality products with even fewer errors than before.
