Over the years, McCoy has seen the importance of certifications within the industry as a further assurance and indication of their standing. 

“We work for some clients who do not ask for these certifications, but as time goes on these requirements are more frequently being written into bidding specs,” she says. “I think more and more of these organizations are lobbying for their specs to be included. We want to be included in that process and we find it an advantage to have the proper certifications.
