ACI is the Accreditation and Certification Institute, an independent non-profit association supported by the American Fence Association (AFA), the Chain Link Fence Manufacturers Institute (CLFMI), the Door and Access Systems Manufacturers Association (DASMA), and the National Ornamental and Miscellaneous Metals Association (NOMMA).

ACI was created as a third-party credentialing organization that focuses on programs for the fence, gate, active vehicular access barrier, access control, deck and rail industries. 

In order to best facilitate the full scope of their education programs and outreach, ACI’s supporting organizational members determined they could best serve their members and the general public by developing their own certification programs by partnering with a third-party credentialing organization.  This venture is part of a broader strategic plan to establish ACI-credentialed companies and individuals as independently verified professionals who comply with best practices and safety standards in their businesses, designs, and installations. 

ACI is an independent organization supported by non-profit associations with an interest in industry professionalism and public safety.  ACI is governed by a board of directors consisting of one representative from each supporting association.
