The term “certified technician” seems like a word referring to a professional with lots of training and education in that particular field. Unfortunately though, the Garage Door business that term really doesn’t mean much. Each company can have a completely different standard for what they consider a certified tech.They can decide what type of training their certified technicians will go through. The problem is that there are no regulations at any level of the government, state national or even county, that put restrictions or requirements on this term certified.
