DESIGNATIONS & EDUCATION
Professional designations can help you make a “peace of mind” decision. They identify professionals who continually demonstrate a commitment to excellence and never rest on their laurels. To earn any of these designations, a builder must complete a regularly updated curriculum of industry-related topics. Candidates for these designations are also required to pledge their commitment to a professional Code of Ethics.
Gotta love these designations! Also gotta look for them when you’re ready to interview builders. Ours include:
