ABoR: In Person Audit: NAR Green Designation
NAR’s Green Designation Course: People, Property, Planet, Prosperity covers the distinguishing characteristics that make a high-performance home. The course looks at how consumer demand for these homes is increasing and provides a detailed accounting of how high-performance features work. The course prepares real estate professionals to provide advice and sources of information to help homeowners improve the performance of their homes—from low-cost fixes and DIY projects to retrofitting and replacing systems to big-budget remodeling projects and new constructions. Ultimately, this course will show you how to apply green knowledge to enhance your business while helping create a more sustainable, healthy world.
If you hold a GREEN designation in good standing, you can audit the courses for just $49 as an ABoR member or $69 for a non-member. Continuing Education credits will not be offered with the audit option. Auditing the course will only be offered in person at the ABoR HQ.
