NARI WELCOMES NEW CERTIFIED REMODELER - Image 1Scottsdale, AZ,Feb. 4, 2019 – TraVek, Inc. is pleased to announce that Von Raisanen has recently achieved the prestigious Certified Remodeler status.

A Certified Remodeler (CR) designation proves the remodeling contractor’s superior knowledge, technical comprehension, and skill in remodeling.

NARI’s CR 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 CR program identifies professional remodelers who have undergone comprehensive review and testing in areas of business management, ethical conduct, and technical skills.  In addition, they must also adhere to NARI’s strict Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. The NARI certification program assesses 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 been working full time in the remodeling field for at least 5 years and passing a comprehensive assessment exam.  Preparation for this exam takes up to 16 weeks of intensive study and self-examination.  In addition, Certified Remodelers are bound to abide by the NARI Code of Ethics and the NARI Standards of Practice.

“We here at TraVek have felt it necessary and important that we always continue learning, and when we have the opportunity to get the certification, we encourage it among all of our people, including myself,” said Von Raisanen, President of TraVek.

To prepare for the Certified Remodeler certification, remodelers are asked to complete a qualification form, which outlines the background of their experience and education in remodeling, and are given a study guide. NARI also offers study groups to prepare them for the written examination.  It enriches the professional’s understanding and maximizes performance during any remodeling project.
