Professional Designations

This section is a guide to help you understand what you need to know about earning Professional Designations.  Professional designations offer excellent opportunities to improve your skills, advance your career, and be recognized for your commitment to professional growth.

 

Professionals in other fields have initials/acronyms behind their names and people take note of them.  A home is most likely the largest investment a family makes and of course they want to work with someone who has taken the extra steps to stay on top of the industry.  Why not join the elite in the home building industry and earn a professional designation?

A designation from the University of Housing or Home Builders Institute of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) says a lot about you. Professional designations offer excellent opportunities to improve your skills, advance your career, and be recognized for your commitment to professional growth. NAHB has the most targeted curriculum, accomplished instructors and widely respected education opportunities in the business. Start getting a designation now so you'll be ahead of the competition in the future.  Two years ago, only four members of CRBA held one of these designations and today, there are 21 members who hold 34 of them.
