Why CSIA's Credentials are the Industry Standard
As in many industries, certifications provided by different organizations are not necessarily equal. Here's what sets CSIA's credentials above the rest.
The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) meets the highest of educational standards and is regulated by the Indiana State Workforce Innovation Council, Office for Career and Technical Schools.
The (CCS) credential was established in 1983 to provide homeowners a means to measure a chimney sweep’s technical expertise.
The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) is a non-profit organization governed by volunteer industry professionals and technical experts located across the country.
Code of Ethics
In addition to passing a rigorous examination, each person wishing to hold a CSIA certification must also agree to abide by a stringent Code of Ethics. We feel this is critical to protecting homeowners from potential scams. If a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep is found to be in violation, their certification may be revoked.
Focus on Public Safety and Industry Advancement
CSIA does more for the industry than certify chimney sweeps.CSIA’s mission includes public and professional education with a commitment to the elimination of residential chimney fires, carbon monoxide intrusion and other chimney-related hazards that result in the loss of lives and property.
CSIA Certified Chimney Sweeps must re-certify through examination or continuing education credits every three years. Since the industry is constantly evolving, CSIA does not believe in providing a "one-and-done" lifetime certification.
