Maintaining Your Approved Status

To remain an NAHB Approved Instructor, you must:

  • Sign the 2017 Instructor Guidelines. If you fail to do so, you will be ineligible to teach. If you haven’t already, review and sign the 2017 Instructor Guidelines.
  • Maintain an active NAHB designation relevant to each NAHB Education course you are approved to teach, unless you were granted an exemption. Visit the Directory of Professionals with Home Building Designations to see if your designations are up to date. Contact the NAHB Professional Designation Help Line at 800-368-5242 x8154 or email to renew your designation(s) or for additional questions.
  • Teach at least one class every three years. If you have not taught at least one class during that timeframe, you must apply for an extension of your approved status to remain an instructor. Email Instructor Services if you need to request an extension.
  • Maintain a 4.5 or higher evaluation rating on a 5-point scale. Evaluation scores are reviewed quarterly based on a rolling average over a three-year period, both for individual courses and overall instructor rating. If you fail to meet the minimum 4.5 score, NAHB Education will notify you, and you will be referred to the respective oversight committee for review. You may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including removal of your instructor status.
  • Tell us if your contact information changes by sending an email to NAHB Education. This allows us to maintain an accurate database and it helps licensed HBAs find you to teach. You should also make sure that your local association has your current information.
