Quality Programs

The MBCEA is dedicated to the professional advancement of our members. Our Annual Conference and local Chapter events are your best source of quality programs presented by the best in the industry.


Years ago, we formed the Metal Buildings Institute to be the educational arm of the MBCEA. Their signature program, the Quality and Craftsmanship Training Series has trained thousands of young erectors and is widely considered the only source of training exclusive to our industry. In addition to the instructional Quality and Craftsmanship series, the MBI offers testing.


Our Accreditation Program, AC478, is an internationally respected standard to recognize Metal Building System Assemblers that are committed to excellence. Accreditation provides tangible proof that you have the personnel, organization, experience, knowledge, management procedures and commitment to assemble metal building systems.
