Local remodeler among few to be certified nationally.
Scottsdale, AZ, October 7, 2019,—TraVek, Inc. is proud to announce that David Allen, Mark Poulton, Sam Browning and Matt Baron recently passed the Certified Remodeling Project Manager (CRPM) exam, earning the CRPM designation from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (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.
“We, as a company, are avid supporters of continuing education. These men have recognized that in order to be able to serve our customers better, it is in their best interests to continuously learn and keep current on what is going on in the remodeling industry, whether it be new products, new techniques or new skills,” said Susan Raisanen, Director of Marketing.
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 sub-domains 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.
“This course was particularly beneficial because we did it as a group study here at TraVek. It prompted many discussions among our Production team as to ways we can improve both the quality as well as the efficiency of our remodeling projects,” said David Allen, Production Manager.
The increase in control and management of the job spills into the success of the project and into the clients that are being served.
“People that are dedicated to understanding all aspects of the project, whether it is communicating with the designer, homeowner or subcontractors, and being committed to delivering a quality project, continuing education is a big part of delivering a successful project to our customers. This was an 8 week study course to receive this certification, and we applaud their dedication to professionalism in the industry,” said Scott Raisanen, Sales Manager and Trainer at TraVek, Inc.
