Local Door Company Earns National Accreditation

Cedar Park Overhead Doors (CPOD), Cedar Park, Texas, has been designated as an IDEA Accredited Door and Access Systems Company by the Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation. The Accreditation is effective as of July 1, 2016.

The designation is held by fewer than 300 independent door dealers in the U. S. and Canada. Door and Access Systems Dealer Accreditation is earned by companies who sell, install and service a wide range of automated door and access systems, which typically include residential garage doors, commercial doors, rolling steel doors, fire doors and retail grilles. Such products are most often automated, requiring special knowledge and skills to ensure the products are dependable, safe and secure.
Cedar Park Overhead Doors has been serving the Austin area for more than 30 years. CPOD always provides the latest and greatest in garage doors and operating systems and they were honored when IDEA selected them for this accreditation.

“We as a company agree to honor the IDEA code of conduct, involving truth in advertising, honesty, and a commitment to fair and ethical operations,” says CPOD owner Don Grenier. “We always strive to provide the best for our customers, that’s why it is of upmost importance to ensure the safety and quality of work in everything we do. At CPOD, we have the education, reputation, and drive to uphold the IDEA standards for this accreditation. In both commercial and residential garage door applications, safety and compliance should always be a top priority for any garage door company and we are privileged to be awarded the IDEA accreditation.”

IDEA Accreditation represents the highest level of commitment to quality and safety by the ownership and management of each applicant company. It requires each company to demonstrate, through a qualifying owner or manager, the ability to pass written examinations covering Accounting and General Business Principles, Insurance and Legal, OSHA Compliance and Safety Management, Residential Technical Basics, Commercial Technical Basics, Sales and Marketing.

Applicant companies must also submit proof of liability and workers’ compensation insurance, letters of recommendation and documentation of federal employer identification or licensing compliance and proof of continuous existence for a minimum of two years.
