NARI To Offer 'Virtual Study'

Des Plaines, IL The National Association of the Remodeling Industry will be conducting its first-ever "Virtual Study Group" this month, aimed at enabling remodelers to prepare for NARI accreditation as Certified Remodelers.

According to the trade association, headquartered here, the new program, set to begin Sept. 13, will enable NARI members, as well as non-members, to prepare for the Certified Remodeler exam.

Candidates for Certified Remodeler Specialist (CRS) and Certified Remodeler Associate (CRA) are also eligible to participate in the CR Virtual Study Group, since those certifications also require many of the same components and offer specialists and associates the opportunity to broaden their knowledge base in the area of remodeling, NARI said.

The program consists of 12 weekly two-hour "meetings," conducted via teleconference. In addition, an Internet discussion group will be available for participants to spur further discussion, and to post questions and comments as the program progresses, NARI said.

Additional information is available from NARI, 780 Lee St., Suite 200, Des Plaines, ILĀ 60016; telephone: (800) 611-6274.
