January 28, 2022 | 3:26 pm CST

SAN DIEGO – Closet and storage professionals attending the Closets Expo can take advantage of discounted registration fees to become certified professional designers or installers.

The Association of Closet and Storage Professionals (ACSP) will administer separate certification examinations for designers and installers at 3 p.m. Thursday, April 28. 

The certification programs help designers and installers showcase their skills and achievements, and define their professionalism to consumers and employers. The ACSP, a trade organization comprised of custom closet and storage companies and individuals, maintains a registry of certified designers and installers.

Both certification programs are available to ACSP members and non-members.

As a Closets Expo special, the design certification exam, regularly $275 for ACSP members and $400 for non-members, is being offered for $135. The installer certification exam, regularly $135 for ACSP members and $250 for non-members, is being offered for $75 at the show.
