Designations and Certifications Courses

Build Your Skills

DESIGNATION
About: Designations are specialized credentials for REALTORS®. Designations offer extensive benefits which are continually improved upon and expanded. For this reason, maintaining a designation requires annual dues and continued membership in NAR. Designations have specific core course and elective course requirements, both which may serve as approved education credits toward other NAR credentials.


CERTIFICATION
About: Like designations, certifications are also specialized credentials for REALTORS®. The benefits they offer hold high value, but are not as extensive as those for designations. For this reason, maintaining a certification requires only an application fee and continued membership in NAR, but no annual dues. Certifications have specific course requirements which may serve as approved education credits toward other NAR credentials.
