Lowen Certified is a testing and certification program designed by Lowen Corporation to give individual installers a portable, industry recognized certification that proves they have taken and passed the industry's most demanding graphic installation testing.
Lowen Certified provides professional installers many benefits not found in lesser certification programs. In addition to the respect and recognition that come with passing the demanding testing program, you will be a part of Lowen's nationwide installation network. Lowen contracts millions of dollars annually in installation jobs throughout North America. Being a part of this network gives you the opportunity to bid on our installation programs. In addition, Lowen is making available to Lowen Certified members exclusive wholesale pricing on all of our product lines. This gives professional installers, installation companies and sign shops the ability to sell printed graphics, wraps and signage to end user customers at rates that are the most competitive in the industry.
Other than the certification itself, you are not required to purchase anything from Lowen in order to be Lowen Certified.
If you install vinyl graphics, whether vehicle, marine, or on-premise walls or floors, you will benefit from being Lowen Certified. If you are an installer of window tint or paint protection films, then becoming Lowen Certified opens up a whole new area of revenue opportunity for you.
Our training and certification programs take place at our state-of-the-art Lowen Training and Certification Center in Hutchinson, KS. This 19,000 sq.ft. facility includes hands on training stations for vinyl installation in all applications, as well as classroom training covering all manner of vinyl installation techniques. The Certification program is managed by industry experts Alex Stillwell, Ray Carlson, and Russ Stewart.
Lowen has worked closely with 3M to create a nearly identical testing program specifically for the individual installer. The Lowen Certified Training and Certification Center has been approved since 2009 to perform testing for the 3M Preferred Graphics Installer program. After Lowen has tested individual installers at the Lowen facility, we will forward the test results for final verification and approval by 3M for you to become a 3M Preferred Graphics Installer. See the 3M website for more details on the 3M Preferred program.
