The GAI Diploma (Stage 3)
The GAI Diploma (Stage 3) – in order to achieve DipGAI you must have first passed The Certificate in Architectural Hardware. If your role is talking to architects, contractors, scheduling, estimating, and/or providing technical support then this is the route for you.
After successfully completing the three stages, each student will achieve Diploma status and will be competent to discuss the ironmongery requirements for a project with a client – be that an architect, a building or joinery contractor, a building manager or even a homeowner. Having achieved the Diploma, the student is able to use the designation DipGAI after their name.
No other scheme offers such a broad knowledge and understanding of ironmongery, leading to the most recognised qualification in the industry. The GAI is very proud of its record of preparing so many students for a career in architectural ironmongery over 50+ years.
