Posted March 04, 2018 08:17:36How to get certified maintenance technicians in your lives: You may not have the resources to get your hands on a certification, but if you’re looking for someone who can do the job well and in a timely manner, you’re in luck.
According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the certification program is currently being expanded.
“The NAHB is continuing to expand our certification program, which will now include an additional six-month certification cycle that will focus on the following areas: home maintenance, maintenance, electric, energy efficiency, maintenance and technology, as well as home health, environmental and safety,” a NAHb press release said.
“As we continue to expand the program, we’re excited to see the NAHBs new certification program grow and expand to include other areas in the future,” NAHBP President and CEO Mike McLeod said in the press release.
The NABB has said it is increasing the number of maintenance technicians from the current 10,000 to 40,000.
The NAH says the new program will also include a training program for certified technicians to teach them the skills they need to be effective.”NAM has always emphasized the importance of maintaining a safe home and a safe workplace,” NAM President and Chief Operating Officer Dave Cone said in a press release about the expansion.
“In addition to the certification and training, NAM also continues to invest in our network of accredited maintenance professionals.”
McLeod says the NABBs new program is aimed at ensuring the maintenance industry can remain safe, healthy and profitable.
“A certification from NAM is the best way to provide a safe and secure environment for your business,” he said.
“NAMs certification ensures the maintenance profession can stay competitive, secure and focused on maintaining and expanding their business.”NAM says it is also looking to expand its certification programs beyond its existing certification and skills training program.
“This expansion will allow NAMs members to expand their certification and learn more about the maintenance professions and how to meet their needs,” the press statement said.
The company is also hoping to expand certification to other states, including California, where the NHA has its own certification program.
According to the NAM, certification can help homeowners improve their home’s safety, maintain energy efficiency and maintain a safe work environment.
“We are always excited to work with NHA and the NAG to make sure NAM members are certified to do their job well, and to continue to provide them with the support they need for continued success,” McLeod told TechCrunch.
“We look forward to expanding our certification programs to other state’s NHA’s as well.”
