SSI is an AISC Certified Erector. The certification is for Certified Steel Erector and Advanced Certified Steel Erector. AISC Certification sets the quality standard for the steel industry and is the most recognized national quality Certification program for the structural steel industry. Companies that are AISC Certified have been through a rigorous initial evaluation, and are subject to annual reviews by an independent auditing company.
