Designations are not going away. NAHB Education designations will continue to be supported but will be closed to new applicants starting Dec. 31, 2022,except for CAPS and HCCP; these two are not affected by this change and remain open to new applicants. But education courses and content offerings associated with designations are still growing and changing with the industry. HBAs and instructor licensees, as well as NAHB, continue to offer education programming. If an applicant hasn’t finished earning their designation by Dec. 31, 2022, they will be allotted time to complete the requirements and cases will be handled on an individual basis.
The courses required for the CMP Designation – Principles of Residential Marketing: Research & Analysis and Principles of Residential Marketing: Strategy & Implementation (Classroom and Online) – are not available. The technology to support these courses has not been available for a few years and the course demand did not warrant updating the technology. Please note: If you have completed the coursework, you still have until Dec. 12, 2022, to submit your graduation application.
