Boost Business, Skills During National Designation Month
NAHB members and other building industry professionals can jump-start or complete their designations during National Designation Month this month, now in its seventh year and sponsored by The NAHB University of Housing.
The designation coursework enables members to hone their business and professional skills and convey to their clients the superior training, practical experience and in-depth knowledge that come with earning an NAHB designation.
NAHB offers 16 professional designations covering industry basics such as business management and marketing, as well as specialized classes including aging-in-place programs, green building, property management and more.
Designations for industry niche areas ― such as remodeling, multifamily and sales and marketing ―are offered in addition to the Certified Graduate Associate (CGA), a designation for suppliers, service providers and other people who work with builders.

Take Advantage of Networking
Designation holders can take advantage of valuable networking opportunities throughout their enrollment, working closely with expert instructors and other professionals both within their field and outside their specific areas of expertise. Recognition events are held annually for designees at the International Builders’ Show.
Local home builders associations that offer education often hold special events and promotions during National Designation Month. Members should check with their local HBA.
