To become a CSIA Certified member, a member company must pass an intensive audit process with stringent performance standards categories in nine categories: general management, financial management, project management, quality management, technical management, human resources management and marketing, business development and sales management.

Certified members are re-audited every three years and recertified if they meet current performance standards. The certification criteria is spelled out in CSIA’s Best Practices and Benchmarks, the accepted roadmap for system integrators committed to delivering the level of quality, performance and long-term support their customers expect.  

CSIA said it offers member-companies means to improve “business and executive management skills in support of the belief that being a good system integrator goes hand-in-hand with operating a good business.”

Control System Integrators Association is based in Madison, WI.
