What makes the CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® credential the industry standard?

The CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® credential is acknowledged by a growing number of industry organizations, insurance underwriters, local, state and federal agencies as the measure of a chimney sweep’s knowledge about the evaluation and maintenance of chimney and venting systems. In order to ensure a verifiable level of expertise within the trade, the Chimney Safety Institute of America must evaluate the relevance of the credential and occasionally increase the standards of the credentialing process.

When your potential client judges your knowledge against your competitor’s, their best gauge is the CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep credential. To ensure the continued integrity of the credential in an ever-changing world, CSIA is preparing to implement changes that will make the credential even more meaningful.
