Did you know that the building industry has a continuing education curriculum that is as comprehensive and specialized as any graduate program in the world, and can help you identify the qualified building professionals that best fit your needs?Through the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB), industry professionals can earn professional designations in any one of 14 specific areas, from green building, to remodeling to sales.
