NARI Welcomes new Master certified remodeler in Central Ohio

Columbus, Ohio,  Nari of Central Ohio is pleased to announce that N. Joel Walter has recently achieved the prestigious Master Certified Remodeler as well as Certified Kitchen & Bath Remodeler and Universal Design Certified Professional status.

A Master Certified Remodeler (MCR) designation proves the remodeling contractor’s superior knowledge, dedication to the industry, and community involvement.

NARI’s MCR program measures skill and expertise valued not only by other professional remodelers, but by consumers as well. Highly respected by those who have achieved the designation, the MCR program identifies professional remodelers who have undergone comprehensive review and testing in areas of business management, ethical conduct, and technical skills. The NARI certification program assess the knowledge and skills of the remodeler in over 20 remodeling task areas including business methods and practices, building codes and construction law, planning and building site layout, and all trades skills required in remodeling your home. Attaining this certification requires the candidate to have attained the Certified Remodeler (CR) designation and maintained it current for a minimum of 10 years.  The candidate must also have achieved at least one additional NARI Certification, and have served in a NARI chapter or a community leadership position. In addition Master Certified Remodelers are bound to abide by the NARI Code of Ethics and the NARI Standards of Practice.

This is a differentiator against the competition in my field of work; the competition is often stiff and having these certifications when others in the field of remodeling do not, it gives you a definite advantage.

These certifications have givin me confidence in what I do.  When you put together a plan, work diligently, set goals and finally reach it, that’s when you gain the confidence which in return works in all aspects of your life.

The certifications have given me the knowledge and how to; to draw upon in the remodeling industry. Having spent countless hours studying and test taking I am now able to put to use my knowledge in being an MCR, UDCP & CKBR in all phases of my profession giving me an advantage in the market place.
