Boost Business Skills During National Designation Month

NAHB members have an opportunity to jump-start or complete their designation this March during National Designation Month, now in its sixth year and sponsored by The NAHB University of Housing.

The designation coursework enables members to hone their business skills and convey to their clients the superior training, practical experience and in-depth knowledge that come with earning an NAHB designation.

NAHB offers more than 15 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.

In addition, 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.

NAHB is stepping up efforts to educate the public about the value of selecting builders who earn a designation, build support for continuing education programs and increase recognition of the rigorous training required for an NAHB designation.

For more information on National Designation Month in March, visit, or call the Professional Designation Help Line at 800-368-5242 x8154.
