Accreditation Program

The MIA accreditation program recognizes those companies that are among the best in the natural stone industry with respect to its physical facility and equipment, business and trade practices, technical knowledge and expertise, quality control, safety, finance, ethics, customer service and education, advertising and promotion, and employee policies for training, advancement, and discipline. The sole purpose of the accreditation program is to increase the quality of fabrication and installation practices in the stone industry and to reward those companies that qualify with a special identity in the marketplace.

Accreditation Immersion Course

The Immersion Course will prepare you, or another employee at your company, to fill out the accreditation application and, most importantly, take the accreditation exam. Attendees have the opportunity to take the actual accreditation exam during the afternoon and, if they pass, that portion of the accreditation process will be considered complete. The price of the course ($199) includes an accreditation application ($250 value).
