Market your commitment to excellence and streamline certification requirements with SCORE packages.
A SCORE certification can help you in many areas of your business. It can help you protect your company, it can save you money on SBCA programs, it can help with team building, and it can give you effective tools to demonstrate and market your company's committment to excellence. If you're purchasing Truss Technician Training (TTT), In-Plant Quality Control (QC), or Jobsite Packages, consider a SCORE package instead - you'll add a few items to your order for little or no cost, and you'll send a strong message to your staff and your customers about your commitment to quality and building your company brand.
SCORE Package Options:
- Certification Program: SBCA Membership, Truss Technician Training (TTT), and In-Plant Wood Truss QC
- Best Practice Program: SBCA Membership, Truss Technician Training and re-certification, In-Plant Wood Truss QC, Operation Safety, In-Plant Basic Training, Truss Manufacturing Orientation, ORisk
"Like a lot of other plants, our management and employees feel we build some of the best trusses around. SCORE is a way for us to show our commitment to producing quality trusses day in and day out - from raising the bar and separating ourselves from our competition, both in our employees' eyes and our customers'."
- Jess Lohse, Rocky Mountain Truss
Benefits of SCORE
Protection: SCORE can serve as a way to protect your company and its assets. By nature, it is an effective risk management tool because SCORE certification demonstrates that you're following industry-developed best practices.
Significant Savings: When you purchase a SCORE program package subscription, your company receives immediate and significant savings on key SBCA programs.
Improve Culture: SCORE can serve as an opportunity to build a productive and efficient company culture, as well as improve team building. Involving everyone in your company is a way for people to feel invested in the company and its commitment to excellence - and reaching certification faster will be a natural side effect of this.
Showcase Excellence: One reason SCORE was created was to provide members with a new way to market themselves to customers and increase their marketplace presence. Part of this is providing members with tools they can use. For that reason, SBCA offers several tangible marketing tools that certified members can use to spread word of their distinction.
