AAADM Certification

Welcome to our AAADM Certification class, a comprehensive two-day training program designed for door technicians who want to enhance their skills and knowledge in the safe use of automatic doors. Unlike our quick start series, this standalone class delves deep into the intricacies of automatic doors, equipping you with a thorough understanding of their operation.

Throughout the course, we prioritize your education on the industry standards that govern automatic doors: ANSI A156.10, A156.19, and A156.38. Our experienced instructors will guide you through practical demonstrations and engaging hands-on exercises to ensure that you grasp the concepts and techniques effectively.

To be eligible to attend class AAADM requires the following criteria be met.
