NARI Adds Certifications, Cuts Fees

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

Comment | More

The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) has announced two new certification programs, temporarily rolled back prices for its certification, and overhauled testing for its Certified Remodeler program.

The new certification programs are the Universal Design Certified Remodeler (UDCR) and the Master Certified Remodeler (MCR). Both will launch in the fall.  

The UDCR certification correlates with the Universal Remodeling Course and recognizes remodeling contractors with expertise in applying Universal Design Principles to residential remodeling projects.

The MCR program will recognize those individuals who have a minimum of 10 continuous years as a Certified Remodeler (CR); who hold at least one additional current NARI certification (CKBR, CLC or GCP); and who have demonstrated chapter, community, and/or remodeling industry involvement.

Also, effective July 1, NARI is rolling back the prices on its certification programs. The Certified Remodeler (CR) and Certified Kitchen & Bath Remodeler (CKBR) will be reduced to $599, and the Certified Lead Carpenter) CLC will be reduced to $395.

These prices will be in effect until May 15, 2010. CR participants get an even deeper discount (cost of $479) by testing by Dec. 15, 2009.

In addition, the NARI Certification Board recently completed revision of the Certified Remodeler (CR) exam. While the scope of the exam has not changed, the number of questions in the exam has been reduced from 550 to 200 and will be implemented in the Fall 2009.

A CR Program Manual will be available for download at NARI.org by June 15, 2009. This manual will provide an in-depth description of the exam components, sample questions, and an application.

NARI is a professional association whose members voluntarily subscribe to a strict code of ethics. Learn more at www.nari.org.
