Apply for Accreditation
Applying for your company's accreditation is simple, and we are here to help you when you need it! If you have any questions or need any assistance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 703-824-8877 and we will be happy to help.
Prerequisite: Set up an ACCA account. To learn how click here.
1. Pay the required application and first year participation fee. The current fees are $800 for non-members, or $600 for ACCA members. (Not a member? Join here first, then come back and apply for accreditation.) ACCA membership is not required for accreditation, but we encourage you to become a member. If your application is not processed for accreditation, you can request a refund.
2. Information: After you make your payment, you will be sent an email with a link to the application form. Please follow the link and answer the questions. If the application is incomplete, you will be contacted to complete the application. This will collect some information about your company such as your state mechanical license information and state business registration information, if required by your state.
3. Documentation: You will be asked to EITHER provide your company certificate of insurance OR contact your insurance broker to have the certificate sent to ACCA. This provides proof of General Liability, Auto, and Worker’s Compensation insurance. (If you have an approved alternative for worker’s compensation insurance, we need that information as well.) Please have ACCA as the certificate holder. To maintain your accreditation, we must have your updated insurance in our records. All Certificates of Insurance can be emailed to email@example.com or faxed to 703-575-9147.

4. Orientation: In the email you will also receive a link, and access code to complete the online orientation, available 24/7. This involves watching 3 short videos for New Homes and/or 3 short videos for Existing Homes (RSI) and taking a required short assessment test. You can take one or both New Homes and RSI tests, and they can be taken more than one time until passed.
When the online application, documentation, and orientation are submitted/completed they will be verified to ensure they meet program requirements.
Once your information/documentation has been verified, you will receive a Certificate of Accreditation from ACCA through email usually within 1 business day, and your company name will be posted on the QA Contractor Directory. Although only one location per company accreditation will be displayed on the directory, the accreditation covers all of your company locations throughout your state. This process can be completed in 1 to 2 weeks depending upon when we receive the required information.
Tip: Due to our system compatibility, you should use any web browser other than Internet Explorer (such as Google Chrome) to complete this portion of the application process.
Your participation must be renewed each year. You will receive notice from ACCA when it is time to renew your accreditation.
