4T Door Systems, Inc. is proud to be the ONLY Elkhart County Door Dealer to be accredited with the Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation. What does that mean for you? It means 4T Door has experience with the products it sells and has demonstrated that knowledge through the scrutiny of an independent organization. We have shown our commitment to the overall quality and excellence of the industry through education and accreditation. Our company constantly pursues new information and education regarding the ever changing industry and products.
The Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation (IDEA) was formed in 1995 to improve the professional standards of the garage door, garage door opener and gate operator dealer industry, and to encourage continuing business and technical education, foster self assessment, and recognize industry professionals demonstrating high levels of competence and ethics. As part of this process IDEA tests garage door and operator dealers and gate operator dealers on their knowledge and understanding about their business.
Accreditation by IDEA is earned by the successful completion of six study sections and examinations covering all aspects of the door and operator business. The accreditation also requires that the dealer be in the business for at least two years, have two letters of recommendation, proof of insurance, and a federal employer tax ID number or resale permit. The accreditation is maintained by completing three continuing education courses over three years.
IDEA is a non-profit educational foundation established to provide professional door, gate and operator dealers with the knowledge and skills required to be competitive in today's rapidly changing business environment.
