Drywall Installer Program
Knauf, one of the world leaders in drywall manufacturing, in partnership with Intertek, has developed a comprehensive training and certification program for individuals performing installation of Knauf’s drywall systems, including shaftwalls, ceilings and partitions. The program, a part of Intertek’s Qualified Personnel (IQP) Program, builds off of Knauf’s existing installer education and examination program, increasing the proficiency of participating installers and adding further structure and third-party audits to ensure the highest level of quality.
Under the program, individuals must complete the Knauf’s existing training program and receive a passing score on the final exam. Candidates can then apply to be an IQP – Drywall Installer through Intertek. Once qualified, the inspectors must maintain their qualification by passing audits and on-going training. The combination of the two programs gives authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs) increased confidence in the performance of the drywall system that has been installed by the qualified professional.
This training and qualification program is open to all interested parties. Log on to https://training.knauf.ae/ for more information and to register for the training classes. To search for Qualified Personnel, go to iqp.intertek.com.
