NAHB and NKBA Expand Educational Oppportunities

March 31, 2013

NAHB and NKBA Combined ClassesGreat news for industry professionals who belong to either the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) or the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), it’s now easier than ever to enjoy continuing education from both groups and earn more designations to provide quality services to the public!

Holders of the Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS), Certified Graduate Builder (CGB), Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR), Certified Green Professional (CGP) and other NAHB designations can take courses for NKBA’s Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD), Certified Bath Designer (CBD) and other NKBA designations, and vice versa, to fulfill their respective continuing education requirements.

The NAHB offers courses in a diverse range of topics, including aging-in-place remodeling, business management, green building and project management. NKBA offers a similarly wide range of classes for kitchen and bath professionals. Members of each organization will also benefit from member pricing for classes regardless of which group they belong to.

This is the newest cooperative movement between the titans of home creation and customization, following the announcement that the NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) and the NKBA Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) will co-locate in February 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

With double the classes now available to earn your designation, there is no reason not to continue your home education.
