The Deckorators Certified Pro program provides resources and promotions to contractors to become trained as specialists for Deckorators products.

Certified Pros receive benefits to build and promote their business through a preferred contractor listing on Deckorators.com, are the first to know about new products and promotions prior to the launch and are equipped with information and resources to expertly sell and install Deckorators products.

Another unique opportunity for Certified Pros is the Deckorators apprenticeship program, which helps qualified Certified Pros meet the challenges of the skilled labor shortage by connecting them with vetted and trained local apprentices.
