What is a Certified Remodeler (CR) as defined by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI)?
The NARI Certification program is designed to establish professional standards for the remodeling industry and to improve the products and services provided to customers. Certifications provides special recognition to those contractors who, by fulfilling prescribed requirements of performance and conduct, have demonstrated a high level of competency and ethical standards in the remodeling industry.
Those receiving the CR status are required to complete and pass an extensive written examination. In addition, the participants’ past and present records of training, education, experience and accomplishments are documented and evaluated by the National NARI Certification Board. The Certified Remodeler (CR) is awarded to those individuals who have served the home improvement industry for a minimum of five years, upheld the standards of the NARI Code of Ethics and have demonstrated competence in the basic area of remodeling.
To maintain a CR designation, each person must annually qualify; for re-certification with the National NARI Certification Board. This is accomplished by completing a minimum, from each group, of the following:
- Completion of industry/business related seminars; attendance in related continuing education classes/programs; use of educational tapes; attendance at national conventions.
- Participation in local/national NARI business meetings; member of NARI Board; other local/national industry related functions and organizations.
Certified Lead Carpenter
To become a NARI Certified Lead Carpenter, applicants must have been actively involved in the industry for a minimum of five years, with at least two years in a lead carpenter position; they must complete a Qualification Matrix detailing their background, related job experience, and skills; they must provide letters of recommendation concerning their experience, competency, and commitment to quality work and ethical business practices. In addition all applicants become involved in an intensive Study Group program hosted by Tri-County NARI in preparation for the exam. Participants of the CLC study group meet in three hour weekly sessions that run for eight weeks.
Applicants must then sit for a full day written exam. Candidates' exam scores, Qualification Matrixes, and letters of recommendation are then evaluated by the NARI Certification Board, which decides upon approval or disapproval of each candidate.
Each CLC is required to recertify on an annual basis, fulfilling NARI's recertification educational requirements. This process ensures that all CLCs stay abreast of industry trends and continue to follow sound project management practices.
