Providing quality large format printing doesn’t mean much unless you have a qualified installation team to see each project to the finish line. That is why our 3M Certified Installation Team is constantly continuing its education, and at AZPRO that starts at the top.
Just recently, our Quality and Efficiency team lead and co-owner, Jason Prenovost, completed a 2-day testing session at an authorized 3M testing location. According to his instructors, Jason logged the highest scores ever achieved at that facility, earning him a requalification on his previous testing that was completed in 2015. This time around he qualified by exceeding the updated criteria recently set forth by 3M for fleet wraps, as well as windows, walls and floors. Jason also holds the designation for architectural finishes.
“This provides us with up-to-date subject matter knowledge that I can pass on to our team,” said Jason, who leads 100+ hours of training per month for the AZPRO team. “Our installers are hungry to learn and I’m down to pass along any knowledge I can. This brings us to a whole new level.”
That level of expertise at AZPRO is compounded by the experience of Jason’s brother and co-owner, Chris Prenovost, who also completed 3M’s rigorous testing in 2008. Chris has served on the board of directors of the United Application Standards Group (UASG) for the past eight years, four of which were as president. The UASG is the body that manages and oversees 3M’s Certified Graphics Installation Company program. Between the two brothers’ background in installation, quality runs through the blood of their team.
AZPRO also holds the unique distinction of being the only company in Arizona to carry both PDAA (Professional Decal Application Alliance) and UASG certifications, organizations of which they have been members since 2007 and 2008, respectively. The PDAA and UASG are the most highly regarded certifications in the graphics installation industry.
“We aren’t in this business to make a quick buck,” Jason said. “We’re here to make sure that our clients receive the quality product that AZPRO is known for. This requalification is just another huge step in that direction of earning and maintaining their trust.”
