The AQC program requires an annual recertification. This is an abridged version of the full application, verifying your company is maintaining all of the core criteria.


Before you begin, verify your company qualifies for recertification:

-- Are you an ABC contractor member? If no, do not continue.

-- Have you achieved STEP Gold, Diamond or Platinum in the CURRENT year? If no, do not continue.

-- Was your company an approved AQC member in 2021? OR, was your company an AQC member in 2020, but had a STEP level below Gold in 2021? If no to both, you must apply as a New Applicant.
