Testing

Many installers are already very skilled, knowledgeable and ready to test. But should you need it, we have several opportunities available to enhance your skills. See the Training page for more information on training. Note that the tests for 3M Certified Graphics Installation Company and 3M Preferred Graphics Installer are exactly the same. 3M Preferred testing completed at the 3M location in St Paul can be used when applying to the UASG as a 3M Certified company.
