You may have noticed our recent announcement in The Maverick Memo congratulating both Adam Berlin, our President, and Matt Kientz, our Production Manager, on their recent Certified Remodeling Project Manager (CRPM) NARI Certification. We are proud of their accomplishment and thought it nice to explain this exam a bit further.
Per NARI, the exam is designed to measure an individual’s application of knowledge and skills in the role of managing every aspect of a remodeling project. Those who earn the CRPM designation have not only passed a written exam but are also held to a stringent set of eligibility requirements, including compliance with NARI’s strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice, earn continuing education hours, have at least two years of continuous remodeling experience and have at least one year experience as a Project Manager.
The program, which launched in September 2011, addresses a growing trend in the remodeling industry, which has more companies using project managers to supervise jobs as opposed to lead carpenters. The program follows a set of knowledge domains and subdomains that include project cost management, communication, project planning, quality assurance, record keeping and risk management. Those who take the course are provided tools and ideas to improve business operations and efficiency in order to generate and sustain growth. The increase in control and management of the job spills into the success of the project and into the clients that are being served.
